BRITISH SCIENCE WEEK: SOUND AND LIGHT
A KPC EVENT
SUNDAY 17TH MARCH
British Science Week is a way in which everyone from anywhere can get involved and celebrate all things science, technology, engineering and maths. The whole week is filled with fascinating and exciting events for all ages (not just the kids)!
KPC recognises the importance of science, technology, engineering and maths and thought this year it was time to get involved! We are teaming up with the University of Strathclyde to throw an exciting day for all the family on the 17th March!
From 12 pm students and staff from the University of Strathclyde physics department will be coming to Kinning Park Complex to facilitate different workshops. These workshops will be showing you how to solve mathematical problems using favourite TOYS. You will also have a chance to find out lots of amazing facts about sound and light. Most exciting of all there will be workshops explaining how magnets work! Be prepared to have your mind blown by real scientists!!
Throughout the afternoon there will be food prepared by our KPC chefs. There will be a wide range of food including vegetarian and vegan options so there will be something for everyone!!
As part of British Science week, we are taking part in a nationwide poster competition. The theme of this year's science week is journeys. Celebrating 25 years of the Eurotunnel which is a tunnel that runs under the English Channel and allows people to travel from London to Paris by train, which is pretty cool and we wouldn't be able to do this without science!! Your poster can revolve around anything to do with journeys! You can work in teams or individually to create your very own A3 poster. The competition is split into different age categories and the prizes will be confirmed closer to the event!
Everyone is welcome to come down and take part in our Super Sunday Science Day so if you want to learn more about science, want to explore your creative side or just want to grab a bite of delicious food then there is something for you!
