Fife Science Festival Prepares to Crack the Code
Published on 8 May 2018
Fife Science Festival is once again preparing to conduct a whole circuit of exciting family fun!
Launched by Emma Dixon, Dundee Science Centre’s very own in-house robotics engineer today, the festival will run from Saturday 12 May until Saturday 9 June 2018. Highlights include free, all-day ‘Science Adventure’ events at the Lomond Centre, Glenrothes and Cowdenbeath Leisure Centre.
Bringing together experts from across Scotland including the Universities of St Andrews and Dundee, the festival will deliver activities on everything from physics and psychology to health and chemistry. Come along and build bridges with the British Science Association, test your strength, endurance, agility and coordination with Glasgow Science Centre’s FitLab, and explore other planets with GeoBus.
Dundee Science Centre, who will once again coordinate 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 festival will kick off with the ‘Design Extravaganza! Meet the Expert’ event at Dundee Science Centre at 10am on Saturday 12 May, featuring British Science Association’s tower building activities, exhibit design workshops with Mairi Collins of Makerspace and the chance to design and build structures with the team from STEMs: Bend the Mind. Visitors can also learn about the creation puzzles and challenges used in psychology and neuroscience experiments from University of St Andrews engineers.
Paul Strachan, Exhibition and Community Engagement Manager, Dundee Science Centre said, “We very much want Fifers to view Dundee Science Centre as part of their community and will be offering them a limited number of free tickets to cover the cost of admission. To be eligible, they must be local to the Fife region and should get in touch via phone to find out more!”
Note to Editors – Fife Science Festival is managed and coordinated by Dundee Science Centre and funded by the Scottish Government, Fife Council and Edina Trust.
