Pop over to the Forge Shopping Centre and try out our “eco-playground” a compendium of giant family favourite board games then stop to talk to researchers from the Glasgow Science Festival team to learn how Scottish scientists have changed the world!

Strathclyde researchers Beth Robertson and Milana Plecas from the Electronic and Electrical Engineering Department host the eco-playground, which offers fun for all the family with a chance to learn some things that may help the environment and save you a few pennies too! Try out our version of snakes and ladders before you hit the shops and when you land on a positive eco-action like walking to work or school, then you climb the ladder! But if you land on a negative eco-action by leaving electrical items overnight, then you slide down the snake back to where you started! Other games to expect include twister, play your cards right and table top bingo.

Take a break from shopping and playing games, to discover more about the discoveries and innovations made by some of the great Scottish scientists’ with the Glasgow Science Festival team. Some better known than others – find out who they were and what makes them great today! Explore their stories by creating cuddly microbes, taking the fruit-scan quiz and playing with the colours of light.
