Our annual three-day free science festival celebrates Durham University’s latest research with our local community, targeting 7 to 11 year olds and their families. Each year during the local schools’ October half-term holiday more than 200 staff and student volunteers from departments across the University engage and inspire young people. Since 2010 well over 71,000 visitors have shared in the excitement of Durham University research.
