For British Science Week we held a Community Science Day at the POD in Birmingham and boy did it go with a Whizz Pop Bang!
We walked like Dinosaurs and heard plenty of fizzing in our Fizz Pop workshop! A range of “pick and mix” activities were also on offer for those who just wanted to dip their toes in the science world. Testing our reaction times, our maths skills and star spotting online were all great fun.
Our co-chair Lucy said of the event, “The Community Science Day was good hands-on fun. I enjoyed sharing some of the excitement that I find in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) with the attendees.” Although as always, science doesn’t always go to plan, she admits, “Some of the experiments could have been more impressive but science does not always go how you expect.”
Our free event went down a treat with plenty of fun for both kids and the adults! Surrounded by happy smiles, our BSA volunteers had a blast sharing exciting and interesting science with members of the local community.
