Families can enjoy a week of fun activities based on the science behind the Roman Baths and its museum objects as part of British Science Week (10-19 March 2017).
The week kicks off with Science Busking on Saturday 11 March, 2-5pm. From discovering Roman pottery found at the Baths to finding out how to test water temperature at the Great Bath, there will be a range of activities to enjoy. The BRSLI Science Cadets will also be there, with geology activities related to Bath’s amazing hot spring.
Throughout the week (13-17 March, 2-4pm), hands-on science events will be running with the chance to explore the science behind coins, mosaics and bones from the museum collection.
The week ends with Bath Taps into Science (18 March, 10am-4pm) a day of science investigations at Royal Victoria Park, by the bandstand, organised by the University of Bath. Visitors will be able to find out how the Romans built arches, have a go at building one and learn about the technology behind aquaducts.
All events are free for local residents with a Discovery Card. No advance booking required. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
