Lancashire Science Festival

Our annual Lancashire Science Festival is back with a bang this year. We’ve got a super dooper exciting programme suitable for everybody! Bookable sessions run on all three days – 26th-28th of June, with days designated to both Primary and Secondary school groups! We have over 2600 school children attending over our two school days! Workshops will run throughout all three days giving our science mad guests a chance to experience aspects of a wide range of courses available at UCLan. These range from the electricity of dance, exploring the qualities of movement in electricity and the importance of connections in developing circuits with our physical presence; to experiencing a brain stimulating trail in our Moot Court Room, which will power up our guests to protect and promote their rights and beliefs! It’s all very exciting, especially when we are still confirming new thrilling and intriguing workshops – watch this space.

Another new aspect of our festival this year is our two ‘LancSciFest Late’ events, which are both set to be absolutely fabulous, giving adults a chance for some 18+ science fun and comedy. We are lucky enough to have a The Festival of the Spoken Nerd session, hosted by award-winning geek songstress Helen Arney, stand-up mathematician Matt Parker and BBC 1 science experiments guy Steve Mould. It is sure to be a celebration of science with comedy, songs, live experiments and of course, unashamed geekiness. Our second late event is the Surgical Spirit: The Science of Cocktails, which investigates the physiology of booze and the science of mixology, whilst sampling a selection of cocktails!

Need we say more – Lancashire Science Festival Power 2014 is sure to blow our previous year’s science festivals out of the water!
