What's on in Canterbury this March
8th March 2010

It's National Science Week later on this month, and Canterbury Museum will be running a series of events to inform and entertain.

The theme for 2010 is Sustaining the Earth, and exhibits and demonstrations will be geared around the impact humans are having on the environment, and how scientists are working to counter this.

During 'Acid Attack', visitors will discover the effects of acid rain, with a simple experiment involving vinegar, chalk and eggs.

Other delightfully messy and smelly experiments will involve how scientists use bacteria to mop up environmental pollution, investigating volcanoes, and fishing for beasties in a pond, then putting them under a digital microscope.

If you or your children have any interest in science, ecology, or even just in things that make you go "Yuk!", then Sustaining the Earth is an activity well worth a visit.
