Science Spectacular

The Science Spectacular returns to the University for the fourth time on Saturday 25th October, between 11am-4pm.

Last year we attracted over 2000 visitors and we hope to see as many people taking part in our activities this time around.

You can complete challenging science quests, make square bubbles, or try to put a fly in a headlock. And our researchers will be there to tell you all about their exciting discoveries. It promises to be fun for all the family.
