Volunteers sought for Lancashire Science Festival

12 April 2017

Volunteers are sought for the IOP stand at Lancashire Science Festival, UCLan, Preston, Thursday 29 June - Saturday 1 July 2017.

The event runs from approximately 10 am to 5 pm each day and  involves simple hands-on activities similar to "Physics in the Field", aimed mainly at families and schoolchildren of all ages. We will also demonstrate a Van de Graaff generator and IR and 3D cameras. The activities are easy to learn and training will be given. Travel expenses can be claimed from the IOP and free lunches are available. The venue is within walking distance of Preston railway station.

Ideally we want 4-5 helpers on each day to make the event more relaxed and allow plenty of free time for breaks and to look round the show. Visitors on Thursday and Friday will mostly be school groups, and visitors on Saturday will mostly be members of the general public.

If you are interested in helping please contact: Bob Jones, jonesr1522@gmail.com for further information, stating any preference for days and times. Volunteers for part of a day are welcome
