The BedPop Science Lab is back and bringing even more free hands-on events to Bedford town centre.

On March 11, Bedford Central Library, the Higgins Bedford, the Quarry Theatre at St Luke’s, Basement @ Bunyan and Rogan’s Books will become pop up science labs.

These pop up labs will host dozens of workshops, demonstrations, experiments, challenges and activities.

From coding to codebreaking, engineering to animation, microscopes to geology, there will be dozens of ways to discover your inner scientist.

A full programme of events can be downloaded from the BedPop website.

“Last year’s BedPop Science Lab was such a success that we couldn’t wait to make this year’s even bigger and better,” said BedPop founder, Erica Roffe.

“We’ve added three extra venues, with even more mind-blowing experiments, demonstrations and workshops.

“The Bletchley Park codecrackers are bringing an Enigma machine, Bedford Creative Arts are animating environments and you can even create your own cave paintings with Albion Archaeology.

“There’s definitely something for everyone.”
