Demonstrating 'Nature's Inventions' National Science and Engineering Week

 

This week PML scientists are participating in National Science and Engineering Week (NSEW) at Plymouth City Museum & Art Gallery.

PML has teamed up with colleagues at the Sir Alister Hardy Foundation for Ocean Science PML's interactive science event (SAHFOS), Plymouth City Museum and Plymouth University to present an interactive science event entitled ‘Nature’s Inventions’. This event aims to demonstrate how the natural world has inspired human-made technology.

The NSEW promotes learning, aiming to encourage and stimulate interest in science, nature and technology through events and activities across the UK aimed at people of all ages. 'Nature's Inventions' consists of a series of interactive activities for Key Stage 2 pupils (target age group 7-11) covering a range of topics from satellites, remote sensing and ocean colour through to the mechanics of insect flight.

This free event is open to the public on Saturday 23 March from 11-4pm. There will be plenty to see and do plus an opportunity to enter a competition and win a prize.
