Science in the Peak is a major new science festival taking place from Tuesday 30 June through to Saturday 4 July at the University of Derby, Buxton.
The event coincides with what is set to be an exciting year for science – it’s the International Year of Astronomy and Charles Darwin’s 200th birthday! One of the major highlights at the event is Darwin Today, an interactive exhibition, looking at how we still use Charles Darwin’s ideas – from designing robots to meeting a giant tortoise and exploring the origin of the species. And this is just the tip of the iceberg! There’ll also be Dr Who’s TARDIS and a Dalek, medieval machines and much much more!
Secondary schools across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire have been invited, and the event is open free to the public on the Saturday – so come with your mates or your family!
This is a great, fun way to find out about the range of career opportunities and study options open to you in the areas of science, technology, engineering and maths – don’t miss out!
