Family Fun Day – interactive science for all at Nantwich Museum

Science is the order of the day at a drop-in anytime Family Fun Day at Nantwich Museum 10.30am – 3.30pm on Saturday 29 July 2017.

The quality of the water in rivers has an impact on humans and wildlife – good water quality makes for healthy people and a greater diversity of animals and plants.

The Museum is partnering with Keele University Sustainability Hub, supported by the Ogden Trust who sponsor projects supporting physical science teaching, to run drop-in ‘Eco Detectives’ sessions for families and small groups. The sessions will investigate the quality of the water in the River Weaver and involve a 10 min walk from the Museum to the riverside. Participants will take samples of river water, which they will analyse to determine pH and potential pollutant levels and consider their impact. Participants will be performing real-world, beneficial science experiments, the results of which will be included in a short scientific paper.

The process will be completed in about an hour. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Large groups should contact the Museum in advance.
