About

Wednesday 12 - Wednesday 19 February 2020
Various Locations
​​​

A week long festival which takes Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths out of the lab and into our everyday lives. 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.

More about the festival

Curious Communities

The festival is all about engaging new audiences with STEM, and so we go out into communities where there aren’t usually science activities on offer. We have a strong partnership with local libraries and run Fun Days, special challenges and talks for older people, reaching all 15 Nottingham city branch libraries in 2019. We also work with community groups and youth clubs to run targeted activities and projects.

Curious Lates

Nottingham’s got a great after-dark scene, so we run events for adult audiences, including talks, seminars and comedy nights to show how science is a part of our cultural live
