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.

Crime scene investigation/forensic science
Thursday, 13 December, 2012 - 16:30 to Friday, 13 December, 2013 - 16:30
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.

Thursday, 17 October, 2013 - 20:15 to 21:15
The Crypt Room, St John's Church

This talk will focus on clues to understanding our pets and how they communicate.  Topics to be discussed include modes of communication including body language and behaviour; distinguishing normal behaviour from learned behaviour or a medical problem; special attention will be given to the most common behavioral complaints; anxiety and aggression; and, finally, a brief introduction to recent studies into animals' behaviour.  There will be a question and answer session following the talk.
