Leeds Festival of Science

Festival
of Science

Thanks to all those who attended the Leeds Festival of Science 2016!

The 11th annual Leeds Festival of Science held in March 2016 offered an exciting programme of events to help enthuse and inspire everyone, with activities for key stages 2-5, and public events open to all.

We welcomed over 130 school groups to campus to take part in activities including the first ever ‘Amazing STEM Race’ and taster days for Y12 students interested in studying Physics and Biology. We also enjoyed visiting schools to deliver roadshows on a range of STEM topics including ”Is the use of animals in research really necessary?’ and ‘Blast off rocket science!’. Our public programme included stand-up mathematician Matt Parker and the launch of ‘The Engineering Colouring Book’ (see more here) alongside events held on campus and hosted by our partners across the city.

Take a look at the 2016 programmes and our photo gallery below to see what was on offer.

We hope you can join us in 2017!
