CISF - 2013
The 2013 Festival included the workshops Bubblestrings, Future Earth, Magnets, Maths Around the World, Flight, Blood Bile and Body Bits, and Mr Bug. There was also a screening of the award winning documentary Stem Cell Revolutions, presented by the University of Edinburgh. This fascinating documentary looks at the latest advances in stem cell technology in the treatment of disease and was screened in Thurso and Wick High Schools. As well as the schools programme, there were activities for the general public throughout the week, including a public launch event.
Festival Patrons John Thurso MP and Lord Lieutenant for Caithness Anne Dunnett, along with Festival Chairman Professor Iain Baikie opened the festival and presented prizes to the winners of the Schools Design Competition.
The St Fergus Gallery explored plant life under a microscope and children got to create interesting art work inspired by these amazing images. Joanne Kaar's Portable Museum of Curiosities was with us as well.
