The University’s School of Health & Life Sciences are hosting ‘Smashing Science @ UWS’ in June for local school pupils, giving them an insight into how scientific research impacts and influences people’s daily lives.

The event, which is free to attend, is delivered by UWS as part of the Glasgow Science Festival and takes place at Lanarkshire Campus on Thursday 13th June between 4 and 7pm.

The event 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.

You will see mini-beasts; see inside their blood vessels; find out how high they can jump; play scientific snakes and ladders; learn CPR; listen to your own heart; explore your senses; and take part in a host of other exciting things.

You can register for the event using the Sign-up now! links above and below or simply drop in on the day.
