Events ranging from talks to explorations of the brain made this year’s Sidmouth Science Festival a success despite the weather.
Saturday saw children and adults looking at brain waves, making tornadoes, exploding a volcano and being a weather forecaster.
There were also many talks spanning a variety of subjects with Professor Iain Stewart giving a talk at the Manor Pavilion.
A team from King’s College, London, used choppy sea waves to help educate children on brainwaves.
There was a packed Sunday schedule at the Norman Lockyer Observatory including an entertaining microscope talk by the One Show’s Dr Marty Jopson and jet car racing.
