As well as moving to the iconic Morecambe Winter Gardens for the 2019 Morecambe Carnival, this year’s Science Zone will also feature a brand new and interactive science exhibition! Come and explore the world of science at MC19!
Be sure to book your FREE tickets – Click HERE to book online. There are two sessions on each day of the carnival book now to avoid disappointment!
As part of these fantastic sessions we have leading scientist from Lancaster University talking about some very interesting projects.
Westinghouse – Why Nuclear Power?
Science explorers will be able to hold dummy fuel roads and fuel pellets to learn about what the fuel looks like that goes into a reactor.
There will also be a fun game to guess how many tonnes of coal it takes to make the equivalent electricity of 1 AGR fuel element. Plus, explorers will learn about electrical circuits in our energy rod activity.
Lancaster University at the Science Zone
Lancaster University is delighted to bring to life its exciting research at Morecambe Carnival through fun and interactive activities! Join us to learn about the importance of snot, how DNA works, how our hands are unique, and how to generate truly random numbers using our fabulous light-up cube.
We explore how specialised immune cells and antibodies work to combat infections and cancer. Our growing understanding of immunity leads to advances in medicine, such as vaccinations and cancer immunotherapy. We explore the immune system by seeing bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms grown on petri dishes and up close under the microscope and making your very own snot in a tube!
The Bee Centre – “creating a buzz about bees”
The Bee Centre is the centre of excellence for bee-related education and ethical beekeeping. Science explorers can get up close and personal with our Lancashire bees in their glass hive and can even taste proper, raw honey.
Ludus Dance – ‘Line in the sand’ VR Experience
A 360 view of the damaging prospects plastic pollution is having on our landscapes.
Explorers will have the opportunity to wear a VR headset and experience the 360 film the young people of Ludus Youth Dance Company have created.
EDF Energy – Discover the world of virtual reality!
Shrink down to the size of an atom and find out how a nuclear reactor works in 360 virtual reality. Explorers will have the opportunity to wear a VR headset and experience the 360 film of one what it’s like inside a nuclear reactor.
