Swansea Science Festival: Incredible Innovation

22nd October 2021 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Join us at Swansea Science Festival as we explore innovations and ground-breaking moments through history.

This year, for the first time, Swansea Science Festival is inviting you and your class to be a part of its very first Schools Programme designed to invigorate and inspire pupils nationwide by exploring the breath-taking world of innovation! You will receive an exciting resource pack and get the chance to take part in an exclusive virtual session with Grace Webb, who you may recognise from BBC Bitesize and ‘Grace’s Amazing Machines’, to chat about your findings and discoveries.

Grace will also take you on a journey through the ages, exploring innovative and ground-breaking moments throughout the history of machines with the help of her very own motorbike!

Join us on Friday 22nd October between 9.30am-12pm as we nurture pupils’ curiosity and engagement with science!

The event is aimed at pupils from years 5 & 6 and each class should be registered separately. Each class that registers will receive a resource pack which will contain a plethora of different activities to undertake during the event that will spark pupils’ their interest in innovation. These activities will need to be undertaken in the classroom under the supervision of the teacher.

The pupils will then have the chance towards the end of the morning to join a nationwide virtual workshop (via a link they will receive from us) hosted by the Technocamps team and Grace Webb where they will discuss their findings and experiences of the morning. Grace will also talk about some of the incredible innovations in one of her favourite industries; motorcycling. Motorcycling has been a passion of Grace’s since a young age and she is now a journalist in the automotive world.

In this virtual workshop, Grace will take pupils on a journey through the ages, exploring innovative and ground-breaking moments throughout the history of the motorcycle, with the help of visuals, video interaction and Grace’s very own motorbike!

An Added Bonus! In addition to receiving a resource pack and taking part in the virtual workshop, there are also a limited number of spaces available for in-person workshops. If you’d be interested in receiving a physical workshop, please tick the box whilst registering (this will be on a first come first served basis). A member of the team will then be in touch to make all necessary arrangements.

Please note: when registering, please book one ticket per school. If you would like to register multiple classes you will have a chance to do so further on in the registration process.

There are a limited number of spaces for this event, so please book now to avoid disappointment. Bookings will close on October 15th.
