The Pocket Science Festival is our mission to spark children’s curiosity in science with fun, interactive workshops and talks. It looks like a funfair. It is a funfair, but there’s a nugget of science snuck into every game and demonstration. Using a wealth of hands-on activities, from Splat The Rat to the Incredible Machine, The Pocket Science Festival fosters learning and co-operation whilst inspiring young minds with the everyday wonders of science.

Created by science magicians Richard Robinson (director of Brighton Science Festival) and Jonathan Hare (BBC’s Rough Science), this self-contained educational roadshow has been roaming Sussex and beyond for the last ten years. It has evolved into a versatile creature, easily adapted to different environments from school halls to community centres and festivals.
