With the final preparations for BGTB 2016 now coming together, this page is to remind or inform you of the key features of our festival-in-a-day!
It’s free. Yes, completely free. Thanks to our fantastic sponsors, Rathbone Investment Management and Heriot Watt University, and our brilliant venue, St Mary’s School all the costs of our presenters and publicity are covered, so we can bring an incredible day of science learning and fun to you, for nothing! Everyone who works on bringing the festival together is a volunteer, which keeps the cost of running the day as low as it’s possible to be.
It’s aimed at families. We want the things you see and do to be the start of weird and wonderful conversations, so the day is aimed at families all coming together. This means no unattended children 😉
It’s interactive. Get stuck in. Make a scab. Build a car. Touch a snake. Blow a bubble. Blow up something else!
You get a goodie bag. Our bags are a huge part of the day – pick up science themed goodies as you go around and have a great souvenir of the day for the rest of the year.
It’s in Melrose. Right here in the heart of the Scottish Borders. We love the train, but we love our doorstep even more. Come and join in the fun!
Saturday, September 17th 2016, from 10am – 4pm. St Mary’s School Melrose (next to the Rugby Club).
