Cowdenbeath Prepares for Science Adventure

From dazzling chemistry experiments to flying drones, Fife Science Festival is once again preparing to descend on Cowdenbeath, with a whole circuit of exciting family fun!

The festival runs from Saturday 12 May until Saturday 9 June 2018, with a free, family ‘Science Adventure’ taking place at the Cowdenbeath Leisure Centre, from 11am until 4pm on Saturday 2 June 2018.

Bringing together experts from across Scotland, the Cowdenbeath event will challenge visitors to get involved with engineering and technology with Raytheon, while allowing them to get immersed in the marine life around us with the Scottish Seabird Centre. Meanwhile, there’s the chance to drive some Mars Rovers with University of St. Andrews, take part in numerous ABC Lab activities linked to children’s development, and learn about the science behind bridge-building with the British Science Association.

Dundee Science Centre, who are once again coordinating the festival, will also be on hand with their brand new science boxes, packed with a host of fun activities ranging from medicine and health to rockets and science you can do at home!

The following day, Sunday 3 June 2018, will see Dundee Science Centre’s science busking team head to the Markinch Highland Games with a host of CSI activities relating to bones and fingerprinting.

Paul Strachan, Exhibition and Community Engagement Manager, Dundee Science Centre said, “We can’t wait to bring this year’s Science Adventure to Cowdenbeath – it promises to be bigger and better than ever before, with lots of family-friendly activities to get stuck into. We’re on a mission to bring science, technology, engineering and maths to life for both children and adults alike, with plenty of entertainment and interaction, and all free! Come along, whatever your interests, and embrace some of the highlights of this year’s Fife Science Festival!”
