SCIENCE came to Cowdenbeath on Saturday when a host of superb fun and learning was on the agenda.

From dazzling chemistry experiments to flying drones, the Fife Science Festival to descended on Cowdenbeath, with a whole circuit of exciting family fun!

The festival has been running in the Central Scotland area from Saturday May 12 until Saturday with a free, family ‘Science Adventure’ which took place at the Cowdenbeath Leisure Centre.

Bringing together experts from across Scotland, the Cowdenbeath event was about challenging visitors to get involved with engineering and technology with Raytheon.

Meanwhile, there’s the chance to drive some Mars Rovers with University of St. Andrews, take part in numerous ABC Lab activities linked to children’s development, and learn about the science behind bridge-building with the British Science Association.

Representatives from the Dundee Science Centre, who were once again co-ordinating the festival, were on hand with their brand new science boxes, packed with a host of fun activities ranging from medicine and health to rockets and science you can do at home!

There were things flying in the air and more than a bit sticky for some while drones were flying about during the day.

And there ways of discovering bone structures and finding out about how liquid can have many good properties.

Paul Strachan, Exhibition and Community Engagement Manager, Dundee Science Centre said: “We could not wait to bring this year’s Science Adventure to Cowdenbeath – it promised to be bigger and better than ever before, with lots of family-friendly activities to get stuck into.

"We’re on a mission to bring science, technology, engineering and maths to life for both children and adults alike, with plenty of entertainment and interaction, and it was all free!

"It was brilliant to see so many youngsters wanting to get involved in the experiments and find out how things happen!”
