Saturday 28 January, 10am-12.30pm and 1pm-3.30pm
We're so excited to invite you to join us for our first ever ‘Science For All’ Festival, which aims to make science fun and accessible for families of all ages. This festival forms part of a programme of events to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the death of Gloucestershire-born vaccine pioneer, Edward Jenner.
Learn how hydrogen is made, experiment with parachuting teddy-bears and so much more - there's sure to be something to spark the imagination of budding scientists of all ages.
There will be interactive activities taking place in the Chapter House from 10am-12.30pm and again from 1pm-3.30pm, which are suitable for families of all ages.
We're delighted to be welcoming a number of different organisations, including...
Fun Science - learn about forces: "the pushes and pulls of the Universe". See them shoot the fog cannon, launch little rockets and unleash the lightning machine - and even have a go yourself! Dave and Krissy have years of experience running STEM workshops, demonstrations and parties across Yorkshire and Gloucestershire. Find out more about Fun Science here.
The Canal and River Trust - our waterways are not just important places for us to enjoy but also for the wildlife who make their habitats near or in the water. The trust can test the water’s quality in different ways and one method is to measure the acidity or alkalinity of water. Try the experiments to see the results yourself and how polluted water can be restored. Find out more about the Canal and River Trust here.
Kiwa Energy - come and talk to one of our experts about global warming, renewable energy and hydrogen, and find out about some of the exciting stuff we’ve been working on in helping to develop a planet-friendly energy system. Kiwa Energy is a company based in Bishop’s Cleeve, Gloucestershire that provides TIC (testing, inspection and certification), training and consultancy services on all matter of issues related to energy and, in particular, to the development of hydrogen as a heating gas in the home – think natural gas, but without the CO2 emissions! Find out more about Kiwa Energy here.
