Unfortunately this event is in the holidays and I can’t take you all, but I wanted you to know about it in case you can get yourselves there ! Please see the email below that I received for further details.

Dear all

I am emailing to tell you about our Public Access Days here at Daresbury Laboratory http://www.stfc.ac.uk/about-us/where-we-work/daresbury-laboratory/ which are a fantastic way to see behind-the-scenes at our world class facilities, speak to the scientists and engineers who work here and learn about how we study the world around us.

In collaboration with the Engineering Open House Day initiative on Saturday 29th July we are opening up our engineering facilities to run tours, a science fair of engineering demonstrations and interactives alongside activities and a public talk that will be provided by our special guests Bloodhound SSC http://www.bloodhoundssc.com/

This Half Day Event is aimed at families but please note all children must be accompanied by an adult. It is a FREE event but will require booking onto using the following link:
