10th Glasgow Science Festival in full swing
Issued: Sat, 11 Jun 2016 11:00:00 BST
Glasgow Science Festival is now taking place, with a host of events to inspire all ages about science, from the ever popular Science Sunday day at the University of Glasgow to exhibitions, stand-up comedy to family fun days.
This year marks the tenth anniversary of the festival which was co-founded in 2006 by marine biologist Dr Deborah McNeill and physicist Dr Rebecca Crawford.
Dr McNeill said: “During my time at university, I found that there were lots of scientists doing incredible research that nobody knew about. Over the past decade, Glasgow Science Festival has given these scientists a place to share their fascinating stories of discovery with the public, connecting Glaswegians with the cutting-edge research happening right here in the city.
"This year, our Glasgow Innovates themed programme will highlight Glasgow’s rich heritage and bright future as a city of innovation, linking with Scotland’s Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design. Whether it’s the ground-breaking detection of gravitational waves or the original discovery of the Zika virus, Glasgow scientists continue to lead the way on the world stage.”
