Activity Weekend - 2020

TechFest Activity Weekend Goes Digital  

Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 November 2020 

TechFest Activity Weekend Goes Digital supported by      Rockrose Energy HIGH RES

 

 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 of experts, opening up the world of science and technology to all and inspire a future in an ever-evolving space. It is a hugely successful event for Aberdeen and one which RockRose Energy is proud to support. - Peter Mann / Managing Director / RockRose Energy

 

The Activity Weekend is many people's favourite part of TechFest so this year we have made it digital! We have two days filled with content from some amazing STEM sources as well as competitions with prizes you won’t want to miss. Activities include Colour Detectives with Aberdeen Science Centre, Amazing Soap Bubbles with Philip Noble, Wobble NanoJelly Experiment with Really Small Science and much more. 

We really do have something for everyone coming your way and we can’t wait to virtually spend the weekend with you!

 - Did you know that we are all made of star dust?  Imagine that!  Watch this short video which shares some surprising, but cool facts about stars. Why they look different colours, how many stars there are and even how the light from the stars actually travels through time.  Who would have thought that the tiny specs of light we see in the sky at night could be so amazing! Click here to watch the video.
