Nottingham Trent University is set to partner the city’s Festival of Science and Curiosity that is taking place next month.

The partnership will see staff and students at NTU running workshops, doing live Q&A’s, as well as contributing to the festival magazine.

Nottingham Trent University Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sharon Huttly, said: “As FOSAC (The Festival of Science and Curiosity) has grown in scope over recent years, so has NTU’s involvement in it.

We’re delighted to be participating in the festival in so many ways and looking forward to a wide range of activities that we hope many will enjoy.”

The festival is being organised by local charity Ignite! and will be held from February 7th – February 16th and looks to promote the use of science, technology, engineering and Maths in everyday life.

This will be the seventh annual festival held, and Festival producer, Megan Shore, praised Nottingham City Council for allowing the event to be held back in open spaces following the pandemic.

Festival producer, Megan Shore, said: “We’re so excited to be able to work with Nottingham City Council to bring the festival back out into spaces across the area and we’ve put together such an exciting line-up of activities, especially including some in-person workshops.

“We’re looking forward to engaging with new audiences, celebrating all the wonderful science happening in our region and hearing what people across Nottingham are curious about.”
