Eureka Series

Newly launched last year, the TechFest Eureka Family Science Programme gets families involved with Science and Engineering by testing their skills with a number of shows and hands-on workshops! 

"Our industry is driven by technological advancement and it is the 'aha!' or 'eureka' moments that often develop into more innovative and efficient ways to safely explore and produce oil and gas." - Greta Lydecker, Managing Director, Chevron Upstream Europe. 



TechFest's Eureka Weekend: Sat 16th and Sun 17th September 2017



2016 saw the launch of our new TechFest Eureka Family Science Programme sponsored by Chevron. 

TechFest has always attracted well-known experts and last year was no exception: Renowned scientist Prof. Robert Winston provided a celebrity factor by giving fascinating talks for the Eureka Series. 

As well as this, TechFest held the Eureka Weekend at The University of Aberdeen and Robert Gordon University where families could get involved with workshops and shows provided by the Universities, TechFest and outside providers. 

The Eureka Series After-School sessions were held in libraries across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire where children aged 3-12 and their accompanying adult were invited to test out their Science and Engineering skills with workshops. Themes included 'Chemical Wizardry'  where children explored the different properties of substances and how they change as if by magic and 'Terrific Teeth' where children learned about the science behind a healthy smile and made toothpaste!
