Bath Taps into Science 2014

Last week’s Bath Taps into Science was bigger and better than ever before.

The free annual science fair is always a bit hit with children and adults alike and this year, with the Family Talk, Schools Fair and Family Science Day running over three days, there really was something for everyone.   

At the Family Talk on Wednesday, Dr James Grimes from The Millennium Mathematics Project discussed the Enigma machine and the secret world of code breaking in our University Hall.

On Friday, Founders Hall was where the action was with the School Fair. The Fair is a chance for year 6-9 students to come onto campus and experience hands-on science. This year children had fun with bees, bubbles and our boogieing robot, Nao.

The event wrapped up on Sunday with science stalls at Green Park Station, a showcase of our cutting edge research at the Bath Royal Science and Literary Institute and short talks from researchers.

Bath Taps is a success due to the continued financial support of the EPSRC and the hard work and commitment of a large number of volunteers.
