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.
