Science of Halloween

On 27 October, in the school holiday week before Halloween, the Branch ran free workshops for children who helped scientists perform weird hands-on experiments such as Graveyard Slime and Turning Water into Blood.

It all took place in the Westfields Shopping Centre and ran all day. As well as providing entertainment, inspiration and a little science education for hundreds of children (and their parents) the event produced an astonishing 89 new members for the Branch!

Many thanks to all those who took part!
