SciTech Inspiring Science – Inspiring Children In the Easter and Summer Holidays

If I have any ability it is the ability to learn from scientists and talk to children,” says Philip Rose, the founder of SciTech, an organisation that for 25 years has brought the most amazing science experiences to children. Philip explains that this ability stems from his imagination which he claims “never really grew up!

The Easter Programme SciTech:+1, runs on Wednesday April 5th, 6th and 7th. This year children will be one of the pit stop crew as part of their Formula1 day, design, build and program a Lego NXT lunar rover as part of their robotics day and as part of their Science of Sound day, use an explosion to measure the speed of sound!

The Summer programme SciTech: 17, is even more spectacular! This year the five-day programme starts on July 31st and again on August 4th, 2017. The South Manchester venue is yet to be confirmed and so the final parts of the programme also need to be confirmed but they do say that this year the children will be setting up collisions with cars and crash test dummies as part of the Car Crash Technology day, using surgical microscopes as part of their Ophthalmology Day. On their Perception and Illusion day they get to experience life in an upside down room as they learn the science of magic. There is a Spy Technology day too but apparently if they tell you about it they will have to… The plan for the fifth day is still under wraps until the venue is chosen.
