WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE? – Visit the Bangor University’s Sustainability Lab Team to find out what everyone can do about climate change, plastics in the ocean and helping endangered species.
BIG CHALLENGES FACING THE WORLD – It’s not as hard as you might think – nobody is too small to make a difference. Our planet; our choices. Join in and make it happen
HIDDEN WALES – Multibeam sonar is now revealing exactly what lies beneath the waters around our coast and how 100’s of local shipwrecks (many associated with the U-boat campaign of WW1) are helping scientists and companies identify the most suitable locations for marine renewable energy devices.
HOW EVOLUTION IS HAPPENING – Explore how camouflage and the industrial revolution led to adaptation in the peppered moth, how seeds have altered beak shapes in Darwin’s favourite birds and how soil pollution can rapidly alter the course of evolution in plants.
VISUAL ILLUSIONS – Be wowed with Visual distortions and other mind-bending experiments all designed to show you how amazing your brain is and how it works!
ECO-STURCTURE – Come and find out about this exciting project of ecologically sensitive design of artificial structures in the marine environment (coastal ecology and mapping scientists)
WETLAND HABITATS – How important wetland habitats are for the planet, they help fight climate change, clean our water and help stop flooding. The team will also be showing how much plastic can be found in our rivers, lakes and the sea and what we can do about the situation.
NO WORLD 4 TOMORROW – Come play an interactive story/literary game to engage in personal and global choices regarding climate change. Start your own interactive story on the topic, learning digital skills and engaging with the topic on a more personal level.
DELVING INTO YOUR DNA – Dr Edgar Hartsuiker is a Cancer Research Scientist who works at Bangor University’s North West Cancer Research Institute. Edgar and his team of researchers will be delving into the world of your DNA, showing interactive anatomical models of the body and showing cool things that you can only really see properly with a microscope. Come and find out more about the cancer research that goes on at Bangor.
