WESTERN ISLES LIBRARIES TO CELEBRATE BRITISH SCIENCE WEEK
For everyone with an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, Stornoway Library will be celebrating British Science Week for the first time this year.
Stornoway Library is holding various events in their new makerspace room - The Space - in March. Show & Tech outreach events are also taking place in community hubs on Lewis in Pairc Trust and Carloway Community association before moving to Harris and further South to the Uists and Barra in April.
On offer are films, talks, activities and workshops and everyone is invited to join.
The week will start at Stornoway Library with a special film screening on Saturday 9th March which will feature two great sci-fi classic movies suitable for the whole family.
Also, the Stornoway Astronomical Society will be on hand with Donnie MacKay’s talk on Planets, Moons, Comets and Things! On the other hand, you could learn more about Rockets, Jets and Spaceplanes with Dr Chris MacLeod from UHI’s Innovation Centre and have some fun with 3D-printed gliders.
If you want your little ones to experience coding and fun learning with apps appropriate to their ages, come in to the Apps & Coding for Early Years events with access to Code-a-Pillars and tablets. You can also experience their PS4 Virtual Reality set.
The library’s Digital Champion, Helene Lagrange, said: ‘We are really grateful to the British Science Association for supporting British Science Week in the Western Isles.’
