This is a "self delivery" pack which has been designed specifically for National Science and Engineering Week 2013. The science behind fingeprints is well known! What is not so well known is the link between fingerprints and footprints. Right Angle Events have launched a new education pack called ‘Toes for Turf’ comprising at least 4 hours of fun teaching material linked to Key Stage 1-4 Mathematics.
We have designed a fantastic scheme especially for National Science & Engineering Week called "Toes For Turf". The science behind fingerprints is well known. What is not so well known is the science behind footprints or "feet prints". This activity enables students to take, classify and "lift" both fingerprints and foot prints. As the research on footprints is meagre, this scheme will allow students to make some discoveries about the correlation or otherwise between fingerprints and feet prints.
Oxford SciBar: Astrobiology - The hunt for alien life
Thursday, 20 June, 2013 - 18:30 to 20:30
The Port Mahon
'Astrobiology' explores the origins and limits of life and where life might exist beyond Earth. But what is 'life' and how did it emerge on our own world? Where in the cosmos might we expect to find ET? Join Dr. Lewis Dartnell on a tour of other planets and moons in our solar system, and even further afield to alien worlds we've discovered orbiting distant stars, to explore one of the greatest questions ever asked: are we alone...?
