Molecule Treasure Hunt

February 15 - February 18


15-18th Feb – 9:00-17:00

Welcome Scientific Treasure Hunters! We’re looking for brave explorers to search for models of molecules hidden across Cardiff as part of Cardiff Science Festival. The Royal Society of Chemistry have hidden models of molecules in shops throughout the city centre – find them all, write down the code at each location and solve the mystery anagram to have a chance of winning a special prize!

Players can collect a map and worksheet from the start location, the popup Cardiff Science Festival shop in Capitol Shopping Centre. This sheet contains clues about different shops in the city centre to help the players find the molecules. An approximate position of each shop is marked on an accompanying map with a number. Inside each shop, there will be an information sheet containing the chemical name and structure of the molecule present in one of the items sold in that shop. This information sheet contains a code (a letter) – players will have to collect all the letters from all the shops and rearrange them to find hidden word.

Drop your completed worksheet back to the Capitol Shopping Centre start location and we’ll pick out winners at the end of the festival for some special science treasure!
