Annual Events for the Public

Festival of Science and Curiosity

This week-long Festival takes place in the Spring half term, and brings Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths to the Nottingham public. Taking place at various locations throughout the city and its suburbs, the Festival of Science and Curiosity is about inviting the people of Nottingham to share what they know, to ask questions about what they would like to know and take an active role in finding out the answers.

The festival gives an opportunity for all the different institutions in Nottingham to engage the public with their work and inspire more people to take an interest in STEM in a creative way.
