Alfresco Family Event

 Saturday 30th June 2018

 Priory Park, Great Malvern

 

Join us for a fun and exciting day exploring the wonders of science and technology from 10:30am to 4:30pm.

The event is free to attend, so why not bring along a picnic and we'll try to arrange some solar rays.

Take a look at last year's programme in our archives.

Activities for all the family

Experiments, games and demonstrations showcasing science, technology, engineering and mathematics. You can apply for your organisation to exhibit here.

More details about participating organisations will be listed below as they confirm...

Local paleontologist from e-fossils, Mark O'Dell, will show some of his fossil finds from the west of the Malvern Hills and in the Cotswolds. He'll also crack open a few nodules with the hope of finding some freshly exposed fossils, and he can answer questions you might have about your own fossil samples.

 


 IETLogo

Institution of Engineering & Technology. For over 140 years the IET has been inspiring, informing and influencing the global engineering community; supporting technology innovation to meet the needs of society. Come to complete the assembly of a Mediaeval siege engine experiment before trying it out to see how well your finished design works.

IMechEngLogo

Institution of Mechanical Engineers works with leading companies, universities, and think tanks to create and share knowledge, fresh thinking and authoritative guidance on all aspects of mechanical engineering. At the park, the IMechE will be hosting a model bridge building competition and demonstrating a manually operated hydraulic robot arm.

IOP 150pxw

Institute of Physics is a leading scientific society; a charitable organisation with a worldwide membership of more than 50,000, working together to advance physics education, research and application. Join them at the event to take part in various hands-on physics experiments including blowing large bubbles, understanding bouncing balls, exploring the way slinkies travel down steps, trying out balloon helicopters, testing ‘exploding’ lolly sticks, as well as investigating pendula, rope waves, and grass whistles.

STEMLogo

STEM Ambassadors use their enthusiasm and commitment to encourage young people to enjoy STEM subjects. They open the doors to a world of opportunities and possibilities which come from pursuing STEM subjects and careers. STEM Ambassadors not only inspire young people, they also support teachers in the classroom by explaining current applications of STEM in industry or research.

Science buskers

Be captivated by explanations of the scientific world around us, delivered from the bandstand.

We'll confirm buskers below as they are confirmed...

 

Science trails

Seek out scientific facts, figures and artefacts hidden in the park.


EHTLogo 150pxw

Dinosaur detective trail: No longer Priory Park, but Jurassic Park! Find the eight hidden dinosaurs and complete the prehistoric quiz.


WorcAstroSoc

Interplanetary trail: Tour the park looking for the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and minor planet Pluto. Can you also find the asteroid belt, some comets and one or two man made probes?

Materials around us trail: Can you find examples of metals, polymers, ceramics, glass, and composites within Priory Park? Answer our quiz questions to better understand why some materials are well suited to certain uses whilst others simply are not.

Microscopy trail: Equip yourself with a fresnel lens and pack of colouring pencils from the information desk, and scout around the park for specimens to examine closely and sketch.
