On Saturday (30th May) the Festival of Learning On-Tour arrived in Falklands Square. The weather surprisingly held up and made for a sunny day full of activities for the public to engage with.
Some activities were focused on the younger generation, this included digging for, and then painting fossils and also soap making, which gave a hands on experience of making soap and the chance to take home the soap that had been made.
There were also activities for all ages to immerse in, hand-grip strength was tested in a competition format,there was a display of skulls to handle and the challenge of guessing the age of each one, and also various archaeological activities, which included maritime artifacts and also an archaeological quiz!
This event also saw the first distribution of the Festival of Learning brochure for this years Festival, this included give away items such as; a Festival of Learning branded water bottle, branded fridge magnets and also Festival of Learning balloons.
