On Saturday 11th of March, Ignite! took science into the supermarket! Hosted by Morrisons in Bulwell for the day, we ran activities based on the Wellcome Trust's The Crunch initiative around the theme of diet, nutrition and wellbeing. We gave away around 40 growing kits for children to grow their own radishes, peas and tomatoes!
Thanks to some fantastic volunteers, we were also able to deliver some of our classic busking activities (energy sticks, confuserphones, slinkies) to the intrigue of the public.
The event was organised as part of the British Science Association's British Science Week, which runs this year from the 10th to the 19th of March and comprises hundreds of events nationwide.
This was part of a series of science themed events in the Bulwell community, with the key message the science is for everyone!
