Quantum Poetics – a lighthearted search for the art in science

You may be starting to wonder just how many events are being held over Dumfries and Galloway's Wild Science Family MAYHEM day, and the answer clearly is even more than you thought!

How about a combination of science and poetry? Time for some quantum poetics (obviously)

As part of Dumfries & Galloway Wild Science Family MAYHEM! Day, poet and educator Jean
Atkin is offering Quantum Poetics, two fun-seeking and exploratory short workshops aimed at guiding scientists to the poetry that lurks in pendulums, and poets to the thrills to be had from theoretical physics. But no doctorates are required – just curiosity and a sense of adventure!

Jean will help participants find their way into making a short poem inspired by science, using appropriately ‘Mayhem! Day’ unorthodox and experimental techniques. Expect both laughter and some serious creativity. The workshops are at: 11am – 12 noon and 1.30pm – 2.30pm. Free entry (age 14 to 104) but please book ( ) as places on the workshops will be limited.

Dumfries & Galloway Wild Science Family MAYHEM! Day takes place in the Rutherford
McCowan Building, The Crichton Campus, Bankend Road, Dumfries DG1 4ZL
