Bright sparks 'r' us

Monday, 18 March, 2013 - 09:00 to Friday, 22 March, 2013 - 15:00

A week of activities planned around inventions and inventors - 'what would happen in a world without your favourite invention ?' 'research a famous inventor/discovery.' Use your design and innovation skills to come up with your own invention and present it in our 'Dragon's Den.' Finalists will present at our Wednesday night showcase for friends and family. Older pupils will participate in a 'Lighting up the Curriculum for Excellence' workshop and use their new skills in electronics to spark their imagination for inventing. Join in with mum and dad in our ever popular science quiz. The week of activities will be targeted at nursery through to primary 7 with families and friends to attend the open night.
