    This is a great initiative Richard! I imagine in the detail for the family weekend there are programmes / events catering for primary and secondary kids - our future budding scientists?

    Speaking generally, I'd love to see the young'uns of today get a grounding in concepts like the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics (entropy - 'turning good stuff into rubbish') and the exponential function to help understand why the world's economy can't keep expanding without limits.

    Science in the impending Dark Age...
    a tale of two cities;
    The City of the Monkey God is threatened by fast food beef corporations!
    The City of the Hunter is levelled by zealots

  • Joe Wylie,

    Nanogirl. Hope she fares better than Microworld of Inner Space, which I guess no-one much remembers. It was down in Halsey Street near the Ak. waterfront, and featured interactive zoomable exhibits of stuff like ant nests, bacteria, and forensic microscope slides.

    Very cool for the time. Set up by a couple of science teachers and a digital whizz, it apparently did OK with school parties until a financial wide boy asset stripped it. All those sweet little macro-lensed video cameras and interactive rigs got auctioned off for a song.
