TechFest festival programme launched
Ever thought about the science behind everyday life? Now it's time to discover the science behind everything! TechFest, our festival of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, returns to Aberdeen later this month.
TechFest activity weekend, 26-27 August
It’s one thing knowing the theory behind everyday science but this is your chance to get hands on with it! Fit for all of the family, TechFest’s activity weekend gives people a chance to also speak directly with experts themselves, our scientists!
Activities on the day include, the TechFest Dome, ToddleFest, Robot Sumo Challenge and Extreme Environments! The best news is that this weekend won’t empty your pockets… adults pay £1 and children pay 1p! No pre-booking required and you can even bring your own picnic.
TechFest public programme, 11-25 September
TechFest’s public programme, open to all of the public, includes some of the most quirky and innovative events in town.
For laugh-out-loud and hair-raising fun, join the Horrible Science Show. Or if you still want to get hands on, TechFest is heading out to Aberdeenshire for its Eureka Day at The Barn! Don’t miss the FABLAB Revolutions at MAKE where you can try out 3D printing for yourself!
And if you think this doesn’t sound like it’s for you...join 10 Dollar Shake as they talk you through a very scientific whisky tasting; go on an exclusive tour of LoneWolf or visit FIERCE Beer’s microbrewery!
How about this - you can even find out why mathematics might play a part in not having a boyfriend; make a 3D selfie; and find out if you really can die of a broken heart!
This is just a quick overview of what you can expect from our science festival from 26 August – 25 September 2017. To view the brand new TechFest programme and book your tickets visit www.techfestsetpoint.org.uk.
