Showcase for uni's science and engineering
CUTTING edge engineering and science work carried out at Swansea University is being showcased this week at the Urdd National Eisteddfod.
The festival, near Caernarfon, will play host to an exhibition of Bloodhound, the supersonic car which aims to break the land speed world record and reach 1,000 miles per hour in South Africa next year.
Researchers from the university's college of engineering have contributed towards its aerodynamic design, and a video explaining its creation will be shown all week.
Another highlight will be a film premier in Welsh of Glimpse: Greenland's Disappearing Ice. The documentary follows university glaciologists on their summer expedition to find out why Greenland's ice is changing, and is being shown on Friday at 3pm.

Welsh naturalist and BBC presenter Iolo Williams opened the GwyddonLe science experience at the festival yesterday and took part in a question and answer session with former university student and television presenter Nia Parry.
Former professional footballer Malcolm Allen is due to visit GwyddonLe on Thursday at 12.30pm to present awards in a national mathematics competition.
Swansea University vice- chancellor Richard B Davies said: "We are pleased to be able to stage GwyddonLe again, building upon its success in previous years.
"GwyddonLe will provide Swansea with a unique opportunity to promote both our research work and expertise as a university as well as encourage young people from all parts of our country to engage with science through the medium of Welsh."
Pro vice-chancellor Iwan Davies added: "We are delighted our partnership with the Urdd has continued and we are extremely grateful to all the external bodies for their collaboration this year."
