glasgow-science-festival1  The city of Glasgow has a lot going for it this summer, from the recent Radio 1 Big Weekend, to the upcoming West End Festival and of course the 20th Commonwealth Games that will be taking place. Don’t forget of course that from the 5th to the 15th of June, the Glasgow Science Festival will be taking place at various locations across the city. Read on for the pick of our favourite 5 events that will be taking place.

Science on the Streets: City Centre Tour, 7th June – this science-y tour through the streets of Glasgow is led by Dr Carol Trager-Cowan of the University of Strathclyde. Discover more about the centre of Glasgow than you ever thought possible on this free walk.glas

Digital Innovations, 9th June – Being held at the University of Glasgow, this free drop in lets businesses find out how they can benefit from organising their vast amounts of data best. This is one event that an ambassador from Boyd Digital Towers will definitely be attending .

Tasty Science:  Starbucks Coffee and the Commonwealth, 10th & 14th June – Do you love your coffee? Then this is the Science Festival Event for you. Taking place at the Starbucks Café at the IMAX at Glasgow Science Centre, for £10 you can sample Starbucks coffee from Commonwealth countries that grow the black beverage gold (it certainly fuels this office!), as well as coffee cakes.

Let’s Talk About Space, 11th June – on the eve of the start of the World Cup, the Hillhead Bookclub in Glasgow’s West End will be exploring the Solar System (and beyond) with live music, film and talks. Followed by cosmic themed cocktails and a DJ, you’ll probably never look at space the same way again.

Jaws, 21st June – You can watch this legendary film in the beautiful setting of the Glasgow Film Theatre. Even better, after the film has been screened, 3 experts in Marine Biology will hold a Q & A session to illuminate the science of the oceans. At only £8 a ticket, it’s sure to be worth it!

So why not get involved in the Glasgow Science Festival this June? At Boyd Digital Towers, we will certainly be attending and following it closely.  Visit their website here for more information.
