SCIENTISTS from near and far gathered in Malvern’s Priory Park to help inspire the next generation of brilliant brains.
Hundreds of children attended the Science in the Park event which was organised by Innovate Malvern and was formally opened by West Worcestershire MP Harriett Baldwin.
Volunteers representing the major science industry bodies ran demonstrations and experiments to show youngsters the wonders of science.
The MP toured the stands and chatted to helpers, parents and children about the impressive event.
“There have been scientists doing amazing work in Malvern for more than seven decades and it was great to see some of them donating their time to come and inspire the next generation of brilliant brains,” said Mrs Baldwin.
“Some very clever people have lived and worked in Malvern and I am confident events like these will engage and inform yet more people to pursue science as a hobby and hopefully a vocation.”
Dr Adrian Burden, managing director at Innovate Malvern, added: “The Malvern Science in the Park inspired hundreds of budding scientists and engineers with rocket demonstrations, geology samples, physics experiments, chemistry talks, and medical science games to list but a few of the activities.
“We had a really successful event and are incredibly grateful to all the organisations and volunteers who gave their time and resources to support the event.”
