Climate Innovations: CuanTec - Biotechnology

Climate Innovations

Join us as we explore how we can use innovation to tackle climate change as part of our Green Futures theme. Today, we are joined by CuanTec to investigate biotechnology and how we can use innovation to reduce plastic pollution and food waste.

Climate Innovations: Satellites

What are Earth Observation Satellites? 

There are currently thousands of satellites orbiting our earth. Their uses range from communication, to security, to scientific research. Earth Observation Satellites (EOS) help us to collect information about our Earth from space. By using an EOS to observe events on earth we can spot patterns and phenomena that would be difficult to detect from the ground.

Our Story, Our Future: The Fuath

Glasgow Science Centre's Our Story Our Future is an opportunity to explore the traditional art of storytelling. See how it can inspire minds, strengthen our emotional connection to local environments, and help us to shape our own visions of Scotland's Green Future.

Glasgow Science Centre’s own Abi Jeorrett takes a deep dive into the rich world of Scots folklore to discuss one dreadful monster that might shine some light on the very earliest days of conservationism in Scotland. Listen along, and get involved with a chance to make a monster of your own creation.

Our Story, Our Future: Saving The Forest

Glasgow Science Centre's Our Story Our Future is an opportunity to explore the traditional art of storytelling. See how it can inspire minds, strengthen our emotional connection to local environments, and help us to shape our own visions of Scotland's Green Future.

Join Allison Galbraith as she shares with us the charming tale of Saving The Forest. See how this old story mirrors some very modern-day challenges, be inspired to write a fable of your very own, and celebrate the green spaces we enjoy all around us.

Making a Space for Nature with Wetlands Farming

What are wetlands and why do they matter?

Wetlands are waterlogged environments like swamps, fens, bogs and marshes. Although the word ‘swamp’ might make us think of decaying, dark and lifeless places (except for ogres of course), wetlands are actually thriving habitats! In the UK, wetlands account for 10% of our biodiversity and are excellent sites for some of our native pollinators.

Climate Innovations: Machine Learning

How Can A Computer Recognise Animals?

Computers can use Machine Learning, a type of Artificial Intelligence, to recognise patterns in sets of data. In the effort to conserve endangered animal populations Machine Learning is now playing a vital part in helping to identify different species.

Climate Innovations: Intelligent Growth Solutions - The Future Of Food

What is Vertical Farming?

Vertical farming is the practice of growing food crops stacked in vertical layers. In vertical farming, crops are grown indoors under LED lights and using soil-less methods such as hydroponics, aquaponics and aeroponics. Vertical farming aims to pro
