It’s the time of year again when At-Bristol descends upon the Cheltenham Science Festival, helping entertain visitors with interactive fun until it closes on Sunday.
The At-Bristol team are in the Discovery Zone, where the attraction’s in-house science communicators are bringing science to life with hands-on activities and experiments such as a vein viewer – yes you can really see your own veins using near-infrared light, a Proscope which allows you to see your skin, nails and hair magnified and Power Lab where you can monitor your own heart beat using an ECG (Electrocardiograph).
You can also explore the fantastic world of forces with At-Bristol’s portable exhiblets - discover all about the force of pressure and electrifying effect of electricity!
So far, hundreds of school kids and teachers have had a go at the various activities and are loving seeing their veins and looking in their ears with the Proscope! So if you’re coming along to Cheltenham, make sure you come and find us and say hello!
