Lancashire Science Festival wows crowds once again

UCLan SENS staff took part in the hugely successfully Lancashire Science Festival 2014 (LSF14) held at the University at the end of June.

Visitors to the three-day spectacle were treated to awe-inspiring shows, experiments and hands-on activities.

The Festival featured a number of opportunities to speak directly to leading UCLan SENS researchers Dr Swrajit Sarkar, Dr Stephanie Dillon, Dr Howard Hurst and others from the team about the impact and focus of their work.

The One Show's resident scientist Marty Jopson, Nick Arnold, author of the Horrible Science books, a giant inflatable planetarium and the first ever IncrEDIBLE Science Cake-Off - a baking competition with a science theme - were some of the highlights of LSF14, while the ever-popular Titan the Robot was also on campus to entertain the crowds.

Weighing in at a staggering 300kg, the eight foot super robot has taken audiences by storm with his unique concept of performance and has become a popular fixture at the Lancashire Science Festival.

UCLan was hosting the event for the third time, with large numbers of adults and children of all ages in attendance over the three days. To see highlights from the event please click here.
