Bradford Science Festival – proposals call

The National Science and Media Museum and partners, invites visitors to come out and play, create and experiment with science at the Bradford Science Festival 2017. An exciting new science festival designed to WOW families and young adults with exciting events, experiences and experiments. It’s all taking place in Bradford’s stunning City Park, in the Science and Media Museum plus other accessible but familiar venues.

The Bradford Science Festival is all about engaging families and young people with the science that is everywhere in exciting and inspiring ways and using the City of Bradford and Bradford people as inspiration for Finding the Surprising Science in the City! We will be turning familiar venues and attractions into an Interactive Science wonderland.

This year’s festival is a launch weekend which will grow over the coming years to become a major annual feature in the city’s cultural and events calendar. Launching with a provocative evening of STEM events aimed at our young adult audience and followed by 2 incredible days of playful and immersive experimentation and discovery, focussed at a family audience. The Festival will develop a unique alliance of partners and supporters, create and support new and innovative projects and engage families and young people who may have low science capital to be excited by the science that is everywhere in their city.
