Competition

Investigate, Experiment, Discover!

As part of the Lancashire Science Festival this year we asked scientists, engineers and mathematicians from across UCLan to share with us their favourite experiments. Click on the links below to see some of the activities. Please note that whilst all of these experiments can be done at home, some do require certain items listed in the ‘you will need’ section. All experiments should be carried out with adult supervision and adults should read the ‘Note for Supervisory Adult’ below.
