The 5th Science Festival in October 2016 was a great success. Our warmest thanks to everyone involved for their hard work, sponsorship and all kinds of help. Our photo albums are available for you to view by clicking on the link. We will be adding 2016 Festival photos there as soon as they become available. We will also make videos available on our Youtube Channel soon.
We look forward to seeing you again in 2017 when the Festival will kick off with a weather & music event "Seascapes" on Saturday 7 October 2017! In the meantime, watch this space for science related activities in Sidmouth, including the monthly Cafe Scientifique and ad hoc events.
The Festival theme will continue as “Science in our Lives” to reflect how important the STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Maths and Engineering) are to everything we do nowadays.
We aim to promote curiosity in the young, to inspire them to consider a STEM career in a rapidly changing employment market, in addition to encouraging self-confessed nonscientists to engage with science in fun ways, including art, drama and music and hands-on activities. We also provide talks by experts in their fields for those looking for something more technically challenging.
