Swansea University is gearing up for the British Science Festival Family Weekend, on Saturday 10th September and Sunday 11th September for a weekend of entertainment, hands-on activity and fun for all the family.
Join us at the National Waterfront Museum and surrounding venues, you’ll be able to celebrate Roald Dahl’s centenary with CBBC’s Jon Chase, get creative with arts and crafts, or take part in the astronaut bootcamp!
The Connected Communities project has worked closely with the teams across the University to include community-focused activities across the broader festival, including several events that have a focus on local history or at are at heritage locations.
Power of Water Event – Clydach Heritage Centre and Swansea Canal Society
The festival will include for example the ‘Power of Water’ event at Clydach Heritage Centre in partnership with the Swansea Canal Society from 10.30 am September 6th. Have you ever wondered how a canal works and how boats can climb hills? There will be canoe rides with local guides to explain how the canal operated and a working model of a lock to show how boats travelled up and down hill. More information here.
