North Ronaldsay Science Festival

by Alexandra Wright

We held our second Science Week Festival at the beginning of March.


This year though, it was an online festival with seventeen videos made especially for our festival by people in North Ronaldsay, Orkney, mainland Scotland, Denmark, Iceland and the USA. 


You can catch up on all the videos by following this link: Science Festival Videos


The topics, all based around the theme of “innovation", range from the use of seaweed on North Ronaldsay to Malagan Sculptures brought to Orkney in the 1920s by a North Ronaldsay man, John Muir. 


Many thanks to our funders British Science Week.  Keep a lookout for more videos and activities from the NR Science Week team over the year, and please do check out the videos on our YouTube channel linked above.
