Fascinating and Free Science Talks at The Hive

Families and adults can get a taste of some of the most fascinating discoveries in science at The Hive’s annual Science Night taking place on Thursday 16 March.

A packed programme of free talks will begin from 5pm when Debbie Crockard from the Marine Conservation Society will delve into the deep to discuss all of the interesting creatures that live far below the ocean’s surface.

Find out how microscopes work, learn how bumble bees feed, find flowers and nest, discover the physics of celestial objects, the Sun, planets, comets and exploding stars, and other galaxies at talks taking place around The Hive.

The Mad Science team are running three workshops on the evening to reveal the science behind how planes can fly. The ‘Up, Up and Away’ workshops are at 4.30pm, 5.15pm and 6pm and cost £3.50 for adults and £3 for children.

This fascinating evening coincides with Worcester’s first ever Micro Science Festival as part of British Science Week, 10 – 19 March.
