Registration is now open for school groups to attend the exhibition from Monday 28 June to Friday 2 July. The exhibition involves talking to researchers about their work, so it is ideal for both post-16 students and post-14 students who have an interest in science. All schools groups must be registered.
This year’s exhibition features 28 different exhibits from researchers across the country with an emphasis on hands-on, approachable, interactive displays which have applications in the real world.
The exhibition is a great opportunity for students to find out what is happening at the forefront of the science subjects they are studying, and explore career options with some of today's leading scientists. We will have further details available on our website soon.
Schools visiting this year’s exhibition will also have the opportunity to attend the fantastic interactive science show - Musical makeovers: from dissonance to resonance. The show, presented by Professor of Acoustic Engineering, Trevor Cox from the University of Salford, looks at two bands, both with terrible singers, but who have one mission: to make them sound better.
Trevor Cox, singers from Voicelab and the audience will experiment with the vast range of sounds the human voice can make. High speed video, the world's largest whoopee cushion and some terrible downloads will show how the sounds are made and explain why some sounds are nice and others nasty.
For more information and to apply see the schools registration page. The closing date for registration is 31 March 2010.
