Toes For Turf! Examine the link between Fingerprints and Feet Prints
Thursday, 13 December, 2012 - 09:00 to Friday, 13 December, 2013 - 09:00
Your Establishment

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.

Self Delivery

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.

Particle physics at the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta
Friday, 9 August, 2013 - 09:00 to Monday, 12 August, 2013 - 16:00
Ashton Court Estate

Look to the skies for live cosmic ray experiments where physicists from the University of Bristol will be celebrating the centenary of the discovery of cosmic rays.

As part of the Fiesta we will be recreating the historic experiments where detectors were carried aloft in hot air balloons to show that the cosmic radiation increases with altitude . The University played a key role in cosmic rays research, winning a Nobel Prize in the process. This research also gave birth to groundbased high energy physics and experiments such as those carried out at the Large Hadron Collider.
