Lancashire Science Festival 2017

The Lancashire Science Festival is back for 2017 exploring all things science, technology, engineering, maths and much more! The festival now encompasses a three day extravaganza on the University of Central Lancashire’s Preston Campus, along with a series of exciting Fringe events and our ever popular Lates programme.

The Preston festival is open to primary and secondary schools on Thursday 29 June and Friday 30 June, and on Saturday 1 July we will be opening our doors to the general public. As ever we are delighted to offer our main schools and family programme free of charge.

Have a look at some of the awesome sessions and activities you can get involved in below.
