Aberystwyth University at the National Eisteddfod - Wednesday

05 August 2015

Today, visitors to the Aberystwyth stall will be led on a scientific journey back in time and former students will congregate for a reunion.

Going back to the Victorian Future
Roll up!  Roll up! Come to Aberystwyth University’s stall at 11.00am where the eccentric Professor Marmaduke Salt will guide us back in time to the nineteenth century to experience the scientific wonders of the Victorian era.

The Professor will discuss and exhibit the ways the Victorians made use of science to imagine and predict the future.  What did the Victorians think the world would look like in 2015?  There will be an opportunity to see (and feel!) electrical experiments from the Victorian era and to discuss what we can learn about our own future as we study the future of the Victorians.

2pm - 4pm
Annual Aberystwyth University alumni reunion
Between 2.00 and 4.00pm, we extend a warm welcome to all alumni of the University to congregate at the University stand in a reunion. Meet old friends, reminisce and learn about the exciting new developments currently taking place at the University.
