Switch on to Science

Celebrating National Science Week


Thursday 30th September
10 am – 3 pm

Science is much more than explosions and weird experiments.  It is the knowledge we use to make all of the wonderful things we rely on every day. Join us to explore how scientific knowledge is discovered, and how technology uses that science to make lots of very useful things.  Using our displays of vintage equipment, which are simple and easy to understand, we will talk about the science that makes them work, the stories about how they were invented, and what we use today. We will look at blacksmithing, steam engines, telegraph, telephones, radio, structures, fibres and dyes, music, photography, time, printing, and more. These are ‘hands-on’ activities, so you can touch and try.
