Date announced for Wrexham Science Festival 2010
The Wrexham Science Festival - the only one of its kind in North Wales - will run from Thursday 1 July to Saturday 10 July 2010, it has been announced.
The hands-on science extravaganza, Scientriffic, will take place on Saturday 3 July.
This year’s Wrexham Science Festival will feature a full programme of events, designed to appeal to all ages and interests – from events suitable for children to events designed to support business.
The programme will be packed with science and technology talks and demonstrations, films and exhibitions. A science-themed competition – one of the most popular elements of the festival since its introduction in 2007 – will again be repeated for 2010.
Earth and the Universe; The Animal World; Human Mind and Body; and Bright Sparks will be the four themes of the 2010 festival.
Eur Ing Helen James, Chair of the Wrexham Science Festival and an Executive Director at Glyndŵr University, said: “”We have big plans for the Festival to be the highlight of the early summer calendar. The festival will have a fresh feel and encourage us all to investigate, enjoy, learn and re-think our ideas about science and technology. And, with a summer schedule, we look forward to taking advantage of lighter evenings and warmer weather too.”
