There is an exciting Science event coming to Dorchester!
The Family Science Festival is being held at the Corn Exchange on Sunday the 17th March from 1pm-5pm.
The event is free to attend and will include an exciting range of interactive stalls brought to you by local scientists.
There will be the chance to ‘ask the astronomer’ and explore what stars are made of, mix things up with a local Chemist, and handle exotic animals – if you dare.
Plus learn about radio tracking, and how the technology is being used to help the planet.
You will also be able to observe living microbes and even augment your reality and enter a prehistoric world of dinosaurs.
The event will also see the debut outing of the ‘Dorset Inflatable Museum’ which will be touring the County from April, providing a unique pop up experience whilst the Dorset County Museum undergoes extensive and exciting refurbishment.

The day is being organised by Bournemouth University, the Thomas Hardye School, the Dorset County Museum and Dorchester Town Council with support and sponsorship from the Royal Society of Biology.

The Family Science Festival is programmed as part of the national British Science Week which runs from the 8th-17th March and is a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths.
