The Higgins Bedford will be hosting dozens of free hands-on STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) workshops, demonstrations, experiments, challenges and activities on Saturday, March 7, from 10am-5pm.

There will be demonstrations, chemical curiosities, environmental engineering challenges with hybrid air vehicles, stomp rockets and exploding dry ice volcanoes.

Other activities include building superstructures, becoming pond detectives to investigate invertebrates, looking at microbes under microscopes and creating paper planes, balloon helicopters and air powered model cars to fly.

Calling all budding inventors of the future

The excitement continues at John Bunyan Museum and Basement @ Bunyan, with opportunities to meet amazing animals up close and personal including hedgehogs, lizards and owls - and to create stunning felt flowers.

A series of garden tours, revealing the hidden secrets of Castle Close and behind the walls of The Panacea Museum will be available throughout the day.

Then at Bedford Central Library, you can explore the cosmic wonders of space with the Planetarium.
