Moreton Launches Third Annual Science Festival

Moreton’s third Science Festival once again sees the school opening its doors to a vast array of industry experts and to students from all ages and stages from schools across the community. 

This year’s Festival is set to be yet more spectacular in depth and breadth than the previous years’ with top scientists and TV celebrity guest performers Helen Arney opening the event on June 19th and Greg Foot closing the event on June 26th.  Limited tickets are available to the general public (contact kynesd@moretonhall.com).

In between, the week takes many twists and turns down varied paths of science including forensics, engineering, robotics, chemistry, sci-fi, astronomy and even an immense science challenge day for over 250 children from local schools.

“The week offers total absorption in all things scientific” explains organiser, David Kynes. “The children learn an incredible amount through a multitude of fun talks, practical experiments and trips.  We include as many children as possible from other schools as well. Our continual aim at Moreton is to develop young people’s interest and confidence in many areas of science, and it seems to work!”
