Thanks to everyone who came along to one of our events this October half-term, and thanks to the hundreds of people who ran incredible workshops, put on fascinating shows, gave scintillating talks, and delivered dazzling demonstrations. And thanks to all our wonderful volunteers for helping it all happen. We’re in the midst of working out what happens next – watch this space for our next announcement (or sign up to our newsletter to get the latest news hot off the press).

Arotatorfter bringing some of the world’s best science to Brighton for two weeks, the mission now is to take some out to the rest of Sussex. We roam Sussex and further afield, visiting youth clubs, scout huts, community centres, bus shelters, anywhere, making sure everyone has access to as much science as possible. Why? Because science is cool. I mean, sometimes -273.15ยบ celsius.

Algull_gif_resizethough the bulk of Brighton Science Festival takes place in February, and we’ve recently widened our horizons to Autumn, we’re also constantly on tour – visiting schools and bringing science, education, and most importantly fun to as many educational establishments as we possibly can. If you’d like Brighton Science Festival to come to a school near you, please do get in touch and let us know.
