Children across the north-east will be able to experience a host of educational based activities thanks to Aberdeen Science Centre’s move online during lockdown.
Housebound youngsters are being invited to take part in a variety of activities, beginning with creating a cloud in a jar and extracting DNA from a strawberry.
The fun and educational science resources will also include a series of ‘how to’ videos and blogs on experiments that can be conducted from home without the need for specialist equipment.
Head of operations for the centre, Elaine Holland, said: “We always plan an exciting range of activities during the Easter holidays and, although the format will be very different this year, we have drawn up a programme that will be engaging and interesting for all ages.
“It’s a fantastic learning platform people can dip in and out of at any time, but there will be a strong emphasis on showing that science is a lot of fun.
“In addition to a series of blogs throughout the month, we will also signpost other online resources people can use.”
Activities run beyond the Easter holidays and will have themes including the final frontier and the astronauts and technology that will explore it, as well as a celebration of Earth Day and the USA’s National DNA Day.
