Fair combines music, movement and science
FOR the eighth year running, the Wiltshire Music Centre in Bradford on Avon will host the free family event My Science Fair.
The annual fair, which attracted more than 400 visitors last year, is taking place on Sunday, March 3 from 10am-3pm. Entrance is free.
Organisers are promising a jam-packed programme, full of activities, presentations and performances designed to engage young people aged five-plus in the amazing worlds of music, movement and science.
The day will begin with a bang as Bath-based fun science presenter Cressida Bullock, known by her scientist alter-ego ‘Chemical Cress’, takes to the centre’s main auditorium stage for an interactive experiment.
The fair also marks the culmination of the My Science Fair competition, involving pupils from 14 primary schools across Wiltshire and Bath.
They have been devising their own exciting experiments exploring music, movement and science.
Experiments will be exhibited throughout the day and will be judged by an expert panel, including scientists from the University of Bath, University of Bristol and the University of the West of England, as well as automotive-test specialists AB Dynamics, the Ministry of Defence and Unilever.
