A variety of exciting and fun activities based on the science behind Scottish food and drink production are heading to Fife Farmers’ Market in Cupar tomorrow.

 

As part of Homecoming Scotland and Fife Science Festival, visitors will be able to join in with Dundee Science Centre activities and also get involved in a host of food and drink demonstrations aimed at all ages.

 

Scotherbs will be challenging visitors with their fresh herb sniff test, and food and drink ambassadors will demonstrate how we ‘taste’ food with our noses.

 

The Scottish Food and Drink Federation, who manage the Ambassadors Network, will be answering questions about careers in the industry and there will be an opportunity to see and hear why science and technology are fundamental for food production.

Fife Science Festival, which runs from Friday 14 until Sunday 23 March 2014, stretches the definition of ‘science’ in the extreme, highlighting the sheer fun, fascination and intrigue of everything from rockets and robots to WW1 communications,  crystals, forensics and creepy crawlies.

 

Exciting, colourful and inspirational activities crop up in a host of weird and wonderful venues  ranging from museums and shopping centres to schools, busy streets, a farmers’ market and a café.

 

Funded by The Scottish Government and  Fife Cultural Trust , the festival involves a diverse range of free events for the general public and both primary and secondary schools, all coordinated by Dundee Science Centre and Fife Cultural Trust.

 

Tomorrow’s free event will be held at Crossgate, Cupar from 9am until 1pm on Saturday 15 March 2014.
