University of the West of Scotland’s School of Science and Sport hosted an event at its Paisley Campus on 7th June for local pupils, which gave them an insight into how scientific research impacts and influences people’s daily lives.

The event, Science in the Spotlight @ UWS, was delivered by UWS in partnership with the Glasgow Science Festival 2018.

It saw 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.

“We are delighted to have participated in the Glasgow Science Festival for the second year running and to have hosted an event at our Paisley Campus. This event gave pupils the opportunity to explore the latest in science and sport science at UWS.”
Professor Catriona Tedford of UWS School of Science and Sport
