Experiments

Social Media Competition 

We might not be able to experience live science together this year, but we’d love to see your pictures from previous festivals. Send us your pictures on Facebook or Twitter using #LancSciFest for the chance to win an Amazon gift card, with three runners up winning a John Adams Toys science kit.

Competition closes at 11.49pm on Sunday 28 June 2020. Full terms and conditions can be read here.

Investigate, Experiment, Discover!

As part of the Lancashire Science Festival this year we asked scientists, engineers and mathematicians from across UCLan to share their favourite experiments with us. 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.
