Science Centre Sleepover

Tuesday November 15

 

Boys’ Brigade members from across Scotland spent the night in one of Glasgow’s most famous attractions on Friday November 11.
 
400 Junior Section members aged 8-10 spent the night at Glasgow Science Centre, experiencing live science shows, learning to build their own rockets, creating their own fossils and exploring the stars in the centre’s state-of-the-art planetarium.
 
Bill Stevenson, Director for the Boys’ Brigade in Scotland, attended the event, the fourth of its kind.
 
He said: “Our programmes aim to inspire children and young people to learn new things in a fun way and the Science Centre event very much encapsulates this.  
 
“Spending an overnight in the science centre offers that residential aspect, adding a real sense of excitement and adventure - if not a sleepless night.
 
“The hard work of our own volunteer leaders alongside the Science Centre staff ensures that this is such an exciting and enjoyable time for these youngsters.”
 
David McLean, eight, from the 5th Hamilton Junior Section, added: “It was an awesome night, but it was really noisy so I didn’t get much sleep. I had loads of fun and it was brilliant to spend the night in the Science Centre.”
