People of all ages rediscovered the fun you can have when learning about science at an inspirational science event at South Ayrshire Council's Rozelle House.

The programme for the event, arranged by South Ayrshire Council in conjunction with the British Science Association, included practical workshops, science demonstrations, photography, lectures and the exploration of physics and biology using prisms, paint and jam jars.

There was also a special free exhibition on the theme of the 'Science of Colour' in support of British Science Week. The exhibition showcased natural specimens, butterflies and birds, as well as modern art including Bridget Riley's Rose Return and Henry Moore's sculpture Draped Reclining Figure.

Councillor Bill Grant, Portfolio Holder for Economic Development, Tourism and Leisure, said: "The atmosphere at Rozelle House in Ayr was electric during the science event with people learning, discovering or rediscovering the world and the joy of science. There really was something for everyone with everything being presented in an enjoyable, different and entertaining way. Thanks to everyone who came along."
