Dundee Science Festival Has Designs on Past & Future!
Published on 7 November 2017
Dundee Science Festival will embrace all things digital this weekend, with designs on the past and the future.
As the weekend approaches, travel on a ‘Science Adventure’ to Ardler Complex on Friday 10 November where, from 4 until 8pm, a free, drop-in event will invite visitors to take part in a host of challenges and activities. This family friendly event will showcase everything from how our bodies work and how stress affects us, to the huge array of careers related to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
‘The Digital Past’ will be brought to life on Saturday 11 November 2017. In partnership with NEoN Digital Arts Festival, learn how to make a DIY WiFi booster based on artist Roel Roscam Abbings’ project, try some 3D printing and discover how the different kind of plastics you live with will outlive you, as part of artist Marine Zurkows’ project
Meanwhile, a host of local experts will be ‘Designing Tomorrow’s World’ on Sunday 12 November. Where are we going and what will it take to get us there? What have we learned from looking at the past, while moving into the future? With the chance to take part in a range of activities, including a purse making and weaving workshop using recycled plastic from Dundee Science Festival banners, find out how digital technology is propelling us into the future in areas such as medicine, gaming, engineering and more!
Saturday and Sunday’s events will take place at Dundee Science Centre from 10am until 5pm, with 50% off standard entry fee each day.
