We will be facilitating a range of fun and free events throughout Saturday 7th October, welcoming local people of all ages to participate. Everyone an Artist, Everyone a Scientist.

Gillingham Library will be will be bubbling over with artists and scientists offering everyone a chance to experience something new and exciting about some of the liquids around us. We’ll have fascinating scientific experiments from The James Dyson Foundation for everyone and hands on demonstrations by young scientists from the award winning team at Gillingham School. We’ll explore sonar science with experts from Thales. Adults and children can learn more about the life of the river Stour in “River Matters” with the team from Wessex Water. There’s extraordinary bubble fun to be experienced with Asda’s community team and you can learn about the Science of Wine with one of the experts from Waitrose and, of course, sample some too (over 18s only). Everyone will have an opportunity to get arty with free taster sessions including paper marbling, a water colour technique called Brusho and the terraFLOW project’s River Stour art. Take time to admire what’s being created locally by you and people like you. We’re not going to tell you everything that’s planned, that would spoil the fun! We are saying is: Whether you are 8 or 88 come and experience something new at your local Fun Palace!

STEAM fun for all! If you’re a local Scientist, Technologist, Engineer, Artist/maker or Mathemetician, or just love the idea of mixing it all together, come and play with us – show us what you can do and share your knowledge with everyone!
