Come and visit Glasgow’s wonderful Botanic Gardens for a weekend of hands-on science and horticultural experiments, with members of The Open University and the Universities of Strathclyde and Glasgow. 

Investigate how pH affects the plants in your garden with members of the Open University’s School of Life, Health and Chemical Sciences, and take a closer look at the food we eat by putting it under an online electron microscope.

Discover where soil comes from with members of the OU School of Environment, Earth and Ecosystem Sciences, and try to solve some mathematical puzzles with members of the OU School of Mathematics and Statistics. 

These free drop in events are taking place on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 June, 11.00-15.00 and are suitable for all ages.

More information about the festival is available on the Glasgow Science Festival website. 

There is a wide range of free learning about science to try on our website OpenLearn
