Engineers Ireland are hosting a really interesting event this Thursday evening (6:30pm to 7:30pm) on the science behind the electric guitar. 'Technology Rocks' is aimed specifically at post-primary school students (aged 12-15) and forms part of the brilliant programme of events for Engineers Week 2012. The talk promises to entertain and inform - bringing the science of sound, electricity, magnetism and electromagnetism to life. The evening will also see Scientific Sue sending music across the room using a laser pen and there will be a large collection of cool gadgets, such as remote controlled cars and helicopters and a wall climbing car, helping to demonstrate scientific principles.
The event is completely free but booking is essential (there are only some limited spaces available). Click here to find out more and to book your tickets.
