‘Science Futures Programme’ is funded by the National Science Academy and organised by Glyndŵr University in conjunction with Techniquest Glyndŵr. Wrexham, Flintshire and Denbighshire secondary schools will be contacted with details of events soon, if you wish to register your interest before then please contact: email@example.com.
Planning for this year’s Wrexham Science Festival is well underway! This year the Festival is running throughout the first week of the school holidays, 17-25July, so there will be plenty to keep the kids occupied and kick-start the summer holidays with a bang, as well as activities of a more grown-up variety.
If you are a member of a club or society why not run a special science-themed event during the 2014 Wrexham Science Festival? You could organise a Science themed pub quiz, Pecha Kucha session or a Sci-Fi tribute night. There are lots of ways that you can be part of this year’s festival. So, why not celebrate science in a different way and get involved?
We will be updating the Wrexham Science Festival website and facebook account to tell our festival fans what’s going on locally. So, if you want to host your own science themed event as part of the festival, please get in touch!
