MIND BLOWING FIGURES

Now in our fifth year, it's exciting to think how many spectacular shows, fascinating talks and incredible exhibits we've enjoyed in Swindon and online since 2020.  With over 10,000 festival visitors in 2023, and nearly 7,000 students in our schools programme, we've got to share some amazing science and innovation, with some awesome partners. We thought it would be fun to have a look back and share some of the numbers!

So many young female scientists!

It was amazing to see so many young female scientists .Every person we spoke to had lots of time for my children (6, 5 and 2), spoke to them and they left inspired and wanting to be scientists.

Engaging and insightful workshop

The workshop was very engaging and insightful. The children and staff both loved all of the activities and all could feel like they could join in.

Simple activities that evoked so much discussion!

The activities were simple, but evoked so much discussion amongst the children and staff. Each activity brought science into the real world and helped children make that link between what they learn in class and everything they experience around theme that link between what they learn in class and everything they experience around them
