University of the West of Scotland’s School of Science and Sport is hosting an event at its Paisley Campus in June for local pupils, which will give them an insight into how scientific research impacts and influences people’s daily lives.

The event, Science in the Spotlight @ UWS, is being held at the University’s Paisley Campus on Thursday 7 June, 4pm to 7pm and is being delivered by UWS in partnership with the Glasgow Science Festival 2018.

It will see participants carry out experiments with enthusiastic researchers and find out how science makes a difference in the world in forensics, health, sport and much more.

This event will see visitors getting the chance to meet a NASA astronaut; take a scientific look at bubbles, slime and dry ice; design the perfect paper place; hear their blood; pan for gold, discover how strong their muscles are; and create their own lung. 


“We are delighted to be participating in the Glasgow Science Festival for the second year running and to be hosting an event at our Paisley Campus. “This event will give pupils, ranging from P3 to S2, the opportunity to explore the latest in science and sport science at UWS.”
Professor Catriona Tedford

Launched in 2007, Glasgow Science Festival is one of the biggest science festivals in the UK.

The principal aim is to connect people in the West of Scotland with the amazing research happening on their doorstep, from astronomy to zoology. With events for schools, families and adults, there’s something for all ages and interests. Over 90% of events are free to attend.
