August is usually a quieter month on ReallySmallScience's social media. After the busyness of the school year and the Glasgow Science Festival, July and August are when we get a chance to sit back, take stock and get a start on the plans for the upcoming school year. For our August blog post, I thought I would give you a peak behind the curtain and see what we've been up to.
New and Improved Workshops!
We're always on the look out for new ways to bring chemical engineering research out of the university. Right now we have some new activities in the works that we will be taking to schools and science festivals from September. I won't give too much away now, but keep an eye out for sludgy materials from us!
Of course, we still love our older workshops, and some of them have gotten some attention over the summer as well. We've been trying some new formulas for our nanopolymer bouncy balls, and we have some new ideas for talking about nanodirt.
Joy and Suzanne are also helping organise Explorathon 2017. On 29th September, researchers from across Scotland head out to talk to other people about their research. You can hear more about what's happening from Aberdeen to Edinburgh here, but some Glasgow highlights include Explorathon Extravaganza at the Riverside Museum and Forge Ahead at The Forge Shopping Centre.
On the day, ReallySmallScience will be visiting schools to talk about the nanoworld, and will be at Riverside in the evening, so pop by and say hi!
Upcoming events and mailing list
August may have been quiet, but we have plenty of things planned for the next few months. As well as school visits, we will be at Glasgow Science Centre, Middle of Scotland Science Festival (MOSSFest) and the IOP Festival of Physics.
If you would like to keep up to date with what we're up to, or come along to one of our public events, you can follow us on Twitter and Facebook (and now Instagram too!), or sign up for our mailing list.
