Each day their stand will be taking on a different theme. On Friday the focus will be on water-based activities while Saturday will showcase wildlife. Activities not to be missed include knot-tying, a high-tech interactive sand pit, and a living animal display. There will be crafts, quizzes and even a giant board game. As well as all of this there will be a variety of Broads Authority staff ready to answer any questions you might have about the National Park.

On the Saturday the Broads Authority will host their workshop called ‘Future Broads Challenge’ a session which will look at the effects of global warming upon the Broads National Park and how species are likely to be affected by these climatic changes. Participants will be encouraged to ‘research’ looking through sources to predict the ‘winners’ and ‘losers’ of climate change in the Broads.

Tom Waterfall, Communications Officers at the Broads Authority said,

“Every year we look forward to the Norwich Science Festival. The Broads National Park is of scientific interest for many reasons so it is wonderful to be able to engage with the public and show them just how special we are. Many attendees to the festival aren’t aware of just how close they are to the Broads so this is a great opportunity to engage with them. We’ll have loads of fun activities going on at our stand and plenty of experts who are willing to answer any questions. It would be great to see as many people as possible coming along to the Forum and showing their support for the Broads and the Science Festival as a whole.”
