The Glasgow Science festival finished with a Science Sunday event at University of Glasgow Kelvin gallery and Hunterian Museum. The free event for family allowed to explore different areas of science: physics, chemistry and biology. Enthusiastic volunteers, explained and taught how to use microscopes, control robots and fully engage in various activities. The advances of current research into gravitational waves as well as robotics attracted many little future scientists. DNA profiling, fingerprinting and blood group testing allowed participants feel like CSI forensic investigators and identify the criminal out of five suspects. Several tours were held at the Hunterian Museum: “Chew It Over” presented different types of animal teeth, while “Rainbows from rocks” focused on mysteries of geology.
