Calmast at Bath Taps

A team from Calmast presented at the Bath Taps into Science festival from 8 - 11th March 2012.

Bath Taps into Science is one of the UK's leading Science Festivals and takes place every March as part of UK Science and Engineering Week. On Friday we were at the wonderful campus of the University of Bath where the University's lecturers, postgraduates and undergraduates were joined by professional bodies and local school children to serve up a varied menu of STEM displays. There was even a primary school from Madrid displaying!

The Calmast team represented Maths Week Ireland with a variety of Maths Puzzles and activities. IoP Teacher coordinator Paul Nugent joined us again and ably assisted displaying mindbending physics phenomena with a variety of everyday items.

On Saturday we decamped to Bath City centre to Green St Railway Station. Although the tracks are gone, this is far from a disused station. We shared it with a bustling farmers market and entertained a mainly family audience. We had maths activities again, but in expectation of the audience we also had a lot of simple, messy and fun chemistry activities. And Robert Boyle also made an appearance with his vacuum pump.

We had a quick tour of the Roman Baths and drove around the Royal Circus and Crescent we saw enough of this World Heritage City to want to come back. Definitely! 

Thanks to Chris Budd and his team (Peter, Zoraide, Rob and Bob) for a great weekend of Science and Maths.
