Volunteers at Sir Hans Sloane Centre in Killyleagh are taking a well-deserved break after hosting 2 weeks of science activities!

In-person workshops included The Science of Butterflies, The Solar System, The Science of Bubbles and Dinosaurs.


There were also on-line activites, run by The British Science Association, including:  Question Time (on young people’s concerns about the future, and how science, society and policy may help), Nature’s Calendar Webinar (and recorded signs of spring), Big Plastic Count, Supermassive Black Holes Lecture (by Royal Observatory Greenwich), and a Poster Competition.

Lots of fun was had by all participants (from 2 – 80 yrs!) and numerous butterflies, solar systems, dinosaur nests and bubble wands were made and taken home!
