Event Details 2019


Science Saturday - 16th March (10:00-15:00)

Science Saturday The event involves the Trust, in collaboration with British Science Week, hosting a day of science, technology, engineering and maths.   Families will be challenged to complete a number of hand on experiments including making a rainbow in a test tube, creating a pinhole camera, get water to travel UP, learn about chromatography and much more.   There is a challenge to build a model of a waterwheel, inspiration for the design will be helped by a free viewing of the cast iron Victorian waterwheel which once powered the millstones and made the mill the first building in Castleford to have electric lighting.   Volunteers will be on hand to show participants the waterwheel and assist cohorts in their challenges using material supplied by the Trust.

The day will also feature information stalls and activities from Groundworks, Wakefield Children's University and Get into HE.
