Another year of celebrating science in the city: Glasgow, naturally

The dust has settled.  The owls have returned to Hogwarts.  Our wrap party hangovers have (almost) subsided. And the science-themed cakes have long been consumed.

Glasgow Science Festival is finished for another year and it’s time to reflect on what was a fantastic eleven days of science in the city.

This year was our biggest yet.  By day, school children from all over Glasgow enjoyed free hands-on science activities, from genetics to engineering.  By night, pubs, cafes, lecture halls and museums played host to cinema screenings, whisky tastings, science shows, comedy, art classes and grrrr arrggh zombies!
