Planes, no trains, and automobiles

It’s been an exciting few months at work and I have been making and even featuring in some videos to promote what we’re doing over the summer months and to explore some of the cool things we get to do generally at Glasgow Science Centre.

The automobiles (and cycles)

STV dropped by to film a new exhibit we’ve got at Glasgow Science Centre as part of our summer programme ‘Energise‘ called ‘Bikelextric’. It features me, a tad out of breath, as I try to explain some of the science behind the interactive exhibit.

The planes… well, paper glider

I also donned my creative hat for a video on how to make a glider that flies really nicely.

It’s very easy to make – you just need a piece of A4 paper and away you go. No scissors, cellotape or glue!

Why not see if you can improve upon it!

Watch this space for more videos coming soon!
