Maxwell Torch in Orkney


We have been tracking the progress of our International Year of Light Torch ("the Maxwell Torch") as it visits science festivals and IYL events all over Scotland and beyond; so it was great to see some photos from it's time at Orkney Science festival. While in Orkney the Torch met Nobel Prize winner Peter Higgs, featured on BBC Reporting Scotland and helped promote Particle Physics for Scottish Schools.

The torch is making its next appearance at Lightfest in Birmingham tomorrow, before nipping up to Glasgow for Explorathon and then on to the Sanctuary Festival in Galloway Forest Park on Saturday. We're looking forward to welcoming it home to Midlothian, for the Midlothian Science Festival, in October.
