Half term programme – October 20 – 29
Where are scientists when you need them! We have searched the children and family half term websites for science-based activities, but it seems the financial straits of science providers means they have to raise their prices; and for the same reason punters can’t afford the tickets anyway: a chasm between presenters and audiences. Science is drifting away!

*Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths
