Glasgow City of Science at Big Bang Scotland
The Big Bang Scotland is taking place today across the river in the SECC today. The event aims to inspire and enthuse young people about pursuing careers in STEM, through interactive and educational activities for young people. This echoes our own charitable mission- to promote science in a fun and interesting way.
Our On Tour team is there as part of Glasgow City of Science, whose role is to pull together partners from local authorities, academia, industry, and organisations with an interest in science and science engagement, to focus on how we improve lives.
There are workshops, school competitions, science busking, presentations and lots more happening over the course of today.
Here is a few pics we took this morning of us and our other City of Science partners:
BodyWorks on Tour
Call the Midwife, University West of Scotland
Paramedics Emergency Response, Scottish Ambulance Service
Prosthetics and Orthotics, University of Strathclyde
Secret Service of NHS, IBMS
As well as exhibiting at the event, taking part in the school 3 minute challenge AND doing workshops, our very own Dr Robin Hoyle and Heather the Weather was judging one of the school competitions. We grabbed them mid-judging for a quick snap
