Fabulous Fantastic Plastic 2016

Fantastic Plastic in East Kilbride

Professor Averil MacDonald delivered her inspirational Fantastic Plastic schools lecture to around 900 pupils and teachers with 4 performances over 2 days.   Day 1 was held at Edinburgh Napier University's Craiglockhart Campus on 31st August and Day 2 at East Kilbride on the 1st September.

Once again the lecture/demonstration was hugely popular with both pupils and staff from all the schools that attended.

SPRA would like to thank the following organisations for their sponsorship of the Fantastic Plastic Tour of Scotland in 2016: Edinburgh Napier University; Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining; Royal Society of Chemistry; and the Worshipful Company of Horners.

Plans are already being drawn up for next year and indeed Glasgow University is already confirmed as the venue for 29 August 2017.  As soon as the Edinburgh venue is confirmed we will notify schools.
