"Great event. Very friendly and professional assistants and specialists introducing science. Fantastic opportunity for kids to experience science." 
Activity Weekend Participant 

"TechFest offers people of all ages the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with science and technology. It fires the imagination by allowing young people the chance to try things out themselves and to ask questions directly to experts, hopefully encouraging many to choose a career in science and technology. It is a hugely sucessful event for Aberdeen and one which Marathon Oil is proud to suport." - Carl R HUbacher Jr, Vice President UK Marathon Oil
