Last year’s Science Discovery Days, for children aged 6 to 13, took place during the BA Festival of Science at the University of Salford. There was a new, diversified programme of exciting events, hands-on activities and dynamic workshops designed to wow, intrigue and boggle the mind.
Visitors to the Salford Science Discovery Days made music with Chilean cacti, Peruvian corn grain shakers and other weird and wonderful instruments in the Latin American sound science workshop. They went behind the scenes at the BBC to discover how presenters talk and listen to the director at the same time. And for the peckish, there was Jurassic Jellies - the only workshop in the North West where you could fossilise, then eat a liquorice insect in amber trifle!
The workshops spanned the sciences although many reflected the BA's Festival of Science theme, Sustainable Science, by focusing on issues relating to the environment, environmental sustainability and eco-living.
This year's BA Festival of Science takes place at the University of Exeter, and we will once again be running our hugely popular Science Discovery Days. Don't miss out!
