The Saltaire Festival is an annual celebration of music and art run by volunteers, but this year it wasn’t just art on show. On Saturday 12th September, Kirsty Pringle (SEE) from the University of Leeds decided to inject a bit of science into the event by running a successful science fair. There were several family orientated activities run by the Science department of the University of Leeds such as how clouds form and the impact of pollution on the atmosphere. The British Trust for Ornithology had a large presentation . Keighley astronomical society, was pleased to take part in this event. We had paper rockets, planispheres, astrolabes and astronomy worksheets for the older children to make. For the very young we had space images to be coloured and painted. For the adults, Paul was on hand to answer their questions on astronomy and space science
