The Nottingham Festival of Science and Curiosity is a week long festival which brings Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths out from behind closed doors and into the everyday lives of people. The festival is about inviting the people of Nottingham to share not only what they know, but also what they would like to know; it’s about celebrating curiosity, asking questions and taking a leading role in finding out the answers.
The festival will be taking over various city centre venues on Saturday 16 February, including the Central Library, Broadmarsh Shopping Centre, Broadway Cinema, Sneinton Market, Wollaton Hall, Green’s Mill and more.
Science in the communities with activities in all 13 Nottingham City Libraries, including:
Three fun days at Meadows, Clifton and Strelley libraries
Four Tots Time sessions at Hyson Green, St Ann’s, Aspley and Bulwell libraries
Three Library Club talks at Clifton, Sherwood and Basford libraries
Six Rocket Challenge sessions at Wollaton, Bilborough, Lenton-Radford, Southglade Park, Sherwood and Dales Centre libraries
