The Festival of Science and Curiosity kicks off in Nottingham on Thursday with a week of of events bringing Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths to the people of the city. The Festival of Science and Curiosity is now in its third year and is delivered by STEM CITY, as a partnership of science organisations, educational institutions and Nottingham City Council.
We believe that Science is creative, and that Science has to be part of our cultural lives – and not remote, hidden away, or only conducted in labs behind closed doors. On the Thursday and the Friday, the main focus is on schools. coming in to engage and interact with art and technology and the interplay between both. You’ll get to do things like science busking and learning how to code to create your own games. Then, at the weekend, there are loads of events happening in places like GameCity, Broadmarsh and Central Library!
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 encouraging people to be curious, to ask questions and to engage in science as a cultural activity. So people of Nottingham – what do you want to know? What do you want to find out?
