The University of Bedfordshire will open it doors to the wonders of science at the Luton Science Fair next week (Saturday, 10 March).
This free event is open to everyone and will be open from 12pm to 5pm at the Luton campus.
Visitors will get the chance to look around the University’s labs, from Computer Science to Biomedical Science – there will also be talks throughout the day on a variety of subjects, from science in the Olympics to coral reefs.
There will also be a chance to find out how science works in the world around us, whether it is animation, forensics, nutritional science or microbiology.
The event will be officially opened by Mayor of Luton Cllr Don Worlding and Vice Chancellor for the University Professor Les Ebdon.
Dr Barbara Guinn from the Division of Science said: “I am very excited that we are able to offer the first Luton Science Fair at the University of Bedfordshire. We have an opportunity for members of the public in the local area to see how we use science at the University of Bedfordshire in a wide variety of ways.”
“We hope to demonstrate the breadth of ways in which science is used and prove that it's not just the straightforward physics, chemistry and biology we learnt at school.”
