Science Sunday

Join us at the Aberdeen Science Centre on Sunday 12 March to explore the most mysterious structure in the known universe – the human brain.

This March, hundreds of dementia researchers from around the country will arrive in Aberdeen for the Alzheimer’s Research UK Conference 2017. To celebrate, we have a packed schedule of activities for you to get involved in!

Science Sunday – a free event for all ages
Sunday 12 March,
 10am-4pm
Aberdeen Science Centre, 179 Constitution Street

With hands-on activities, challenging games and the latest in virtual reality technology, we shine a light on the workings of the brain and showcase the pioneering dementia research underway in Aberdeen.

We’ll be joined by Aberdeen FC Community Trust who will be testing your football skills with their target challenge and letting you know how their top players stay fit and healthy.

Between 2-4pm there will be talks from scientists and clinicians working to tackle dementia. A great opportunity to put your questions to the experts and learn about the latest developments in dementia research.

No need to book, just come along and get involved!
