Exhibition - Aberdeen Satrosphere

shire-map-webIf you are looking for something to do this weekend then there is an exhibition on at the Satrosphere (Aberdeen’s Science Centre) called “Where tomorrow begins“. The exhibition runs until Sunday the 22nd of November 2009 and usual admission prices apply.

If you can’t get to the Satrosphere, still check out the website, there are 40 images and information on the wide range of scientific research going on at universities across Scotland. Of course biology and medicine are mentioned (e.g. research in to Alzheimer’s at Aberdeen University or leukaemia research at Glasgow University) but the exhibition covers the whole range of sciences and engineering.

I particularly liked the fact the fact the exhibition covered a range of institutes in Scotland, including the Scottish Crop Research Institute and the Open University. It also mentions Open Learn Scotland, a free resource by the Open University that anyone can access. You can learn more about “Science in the Enlightenment“, “The history of medicine: A Scottish perspective” and “Health Disease and Society: Scottish Influence on the 19th Century” which are all worth a look if you are interested in the history of medicine in Scotland.

Another interesting item mentioned in the Where tomorrow begins exhibition is “Generation Scotland“, which is attempting to discover the genes associated with ill health and includes the “Scottish Family Health Survey“. I will write more about this later, it’s a very interesting idea.

Have you been to the exhibition?  What did you think? Please feel free to leave a comment below.
