OTLEY'S tenth Science Festival is in full swing - with lots of mind-boggling events still to come.

This year's event began on Monday, November 6 and has already featured Stefan Gates' Utterly Revolting Science Show, a discussion on genetics by Professor Robert Winston and a special Science Cafe.

The educational fun continues on Thursday, November 9 - with a 7.45pm screening of the movie Hidden Figures - and beyond, through to Saturday's concluding Science Fair and then the final, evening talk.

One of the festival's organisers, Dr Sue Bowler, said: "There’s still time to get your tickets for Friday, November 10's Science Lunch, where Rashik Parmar of IBM will be looking at the future we can expect from technology in our everyday lives while audience members enjoy a buffet lunch.

"Also on Friday Marty Jopson, who is usually seen on BBC TV’s The One Show, will be coming to the Courthouse to entertain everyone over the age of 11 with his Dangerous Equations show.

"And on Saturday you can spend An Evening with a Space Scientist at the Courthouse with Professor Monica Grady, whose career has included working on meteorites, comets and things that might hit the Earth with a very big bump, giving a talk.

"One thing you don’t need a ticket for is the free family Science Fair taking place at the Courthouse from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, November 11.

"There will be loads of things to make and do, from molecules to working models, all provided by science groups across our region.

"Come along and be astounded by astronomy, boggled by biology, engaged by engineering or even charmed by chemistry!"

Dr Jopson, meanwhile, is promising a lot of action in his Dangerous Equations show.

He said: "You might think of maths as the dull stuff you need to know about to do the fun science.

"But I think it's a lot more interesting that that, especially if you include a few explosions."

A draw to decided the three winners of the festival's Otley Molecule Trail challenge will also be held at the Courthouse on Saturay - with the winners all set to receive a Spiring Enterrpises MolyMod kit.

Tickets for the remaining events can be bought at the Courthouse in advance or - apart from the Science Lunch - on the door.
