We’ve just got back from another magnificent, and free, day at the Lancashire Science Festival.

It’s the third year for the University of Central Lancashire’s three day festival.

The popular festival attracts schools and families from all across the region and invites them to have a go at all manner of fun, science activities.

We kicked the day off watching the international robotic sensation that is Titan.

The all singing, all dancing, wise cracking giant proved popular with the crowds, especially those squired with water (me included!).

We spent much of the day in the science showfloor learning about sharks, engineering, cells, gravity, electricity and so much more.

The highlight for my son was meeting the evil super-villain from Dr Who, Davros.

An Audience with Davros was presented the Hyde Fundraisers, a group of talented and dedicated volunteers who perform at various sci-fi shows and raise money for charity.




We can’t wait until next year’s Science Festival, an inspiring day for all.
