Reading Science Week
We have had discussions with BSA and will repeat the events next year around the weekend of 22nd March.
This year our venue was the Museum of English Rural Life. With thick cloud the first evening was lightly attended but on Saturday about 120 visitors enjoyed clear skies and talks by Scott Marley. Thanks to the British Science Association for providing the exhibition, logistics and refreshments.
We have some images and a short report from last year.
And a quote from one of our helpers this year. “Lots of very eager and inquizative children and grown-ups came. It was a good job we had plenty of telescopes!
I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I hope everyone else did too.
