The Youth Agency had a truly fabulous day out at the Edinburgh Science Festival this week.
We dropped in on a few of their free activities to learn, experiment and have fun. We learned all about blood and how different blood groups are identified, we had a go at extracting DNA from a strawberry, we saw how bees live and organise themselves and just why they are so important to us. We also saw a working robot ‘assistant’ and sniffer dogs at work.
After all this fun, we attended the fantastic Gadget Factory workshop and, after learning about circuits and components, had a go at making our very own gadgets. Once completed we each had a flashy, light-up badge to take home.
Many thanks to our friends at Edinburgh Science Festival for the tickets. #EdSciFest.
