Discovery Days: Science Fair

Discovery Days: Science Fair

Start your Summer Term with a day of unforgettable scientific discovery! Pupils will have the opportunity to participate in a carousel of thrilling experiments alongside real scientistis in our brand-new STEM laboratory.

They will witness how experts in different fields tackle real-world scientific problems with creativity and skill. Join us for an enriching experience that will spark curiosity and inspire young minds to embrace the excitement of STEM.

Introducing the concept of university and helping children to think about their futures, our outreach officers will run sessions in school, both before and after the Discovery Day.

With the University of Nottingham Faculty of Science.
