Activities for Schools
Opportunities exist throughout the year for school and college students to visit the Faculty of Science and Technology, try some hands-on science and find out about life at university.
In recent years we've run activities for National Science and Engineering Week and Chemistry Week, as well as our popular Science and Technology Taster Days, which take place each July.
On a more specialised level, there is great scope for visiting and working with with individual departments, through schemes like Engineering's Wave Power Challenge.
If you have an idea for a project involving one of our departments please get in touch.

Geometry has been a major part of mathematics since the days of the Ancient Greeks. This residential summer school will explore some of the different questions arising from geometrical problems from 2000 years ago to the present day. Participants will meet concepts from university-level mathematics and experience what it is like to study mathematics though formulating problems precisely, looking at examples, generalising and applying logical argument and proof.
