Pocket Science Festival

  • 31 August 2016 11am-4pm

The Pocket Science Festival is a two-man science mission to spark children’s curiosity with fun, interactive workshops and talks. It looks like a funfair. It is a funfair, but there’s a nugget of science snuck into every game and demonstration. Using a wealth of hands-on activities – from Bat The Rat to the Incredible Machine – The Pocket Science Festival fosters learning and co-operation whilst inspiring young minds with the everyday wonders of science.

Created by science magicians Richard Robinson (director of Brighton Science Festival) and Jonathan Hare (BBC’s Rough Science), this self-contained educational roadshow has been roaming Sussex and beyond for the last ten years. It has evolved into a versatile creature, easily adapted to different environments from school halls to community centres and festivals.

Suitable for
