Singtastic is all about celebrating science through the songs of science-mad songwriter David Haines.
David is very interested in IYC 2011 because he says he doesn't know much about Chemistry [he was probably only joking]. The last time he confessed ignorance was with regard to Biology, triggering the desire to learn more, resulting in him writing his first Science Oratorio, Lifetime, which has been performed widely both in the UK and the USA.
The first Teignmouth Science Festival took place during National Science and Engineering Week on Friday 19th March at the Carlton Theatre. Everyone agreed it was a great success.
The 2011 Teignmouth Science Festival, to run over several days, plans to celebrate IYC together with the NSEW theme and an exploration of 'science in Teignmouth'
