Anyone 4 Science?

Anyone 4 scienceAnyone 4 Science was established in 2005 to provide fun hands-on science and engineering activities initially for 8-12 year olds. Supported by the Royal Society of Chemistry we are thrilled to be welcoming Anyone 4 Science to the region for the first time at this year’s Midlands Science Festival. One very lucky school will find out in the coming weeks if they will be hosting this event for Science Week 2015! Really excited about this one!

Time for a nap?

sleep picWe are having a great public event for this year’s Midlands Science Festival with the amazing science communicator Craig Slattery and it’s on a topic we can all relate to – sleep !! This public event in Athlone will explore the science of sleep – why do we sometimes experience sleep problems ? What can we do to get better sleep ? What is happening in your brain when you are sleeping ? Why do babies sleep so much ? Keep an eye on our festival website for details.To celebrate our Science of Sleep Event, we have a voucher for 200 Euros for Burgess of Athlone to give away. Burgess stocks an amazing range of quality bedlinen, duvets and pillows. Like and share this post on Midlands Science facebook page and the draw will take place on September 26th.
