Quotient is a Proud Sponsor of the Nottingham Festival of Science and Curiosity 2022

Nottingham Festival of Science and Curiosity 2022

The Nottingham Festival of Science and Curiosity is back with a renewed vigour for all things scientific and curiosity-inspiring and with a programme brimming with activities for all the family across the county. Celebrating its seventh anniversary, the festival will be running from 7-16th February. The festival is all about providing opportunities for people in Nottinghamshire to be inquisitive, ask questions and let curiosity lead the way!

Quotient Sciences, a Nottingham, UK based drug development and manufacturing accelerator, will be supporting the festival once again, continuing its commitment to help the festival get science out of the labs and into the everyday lives of local people. A group of volunteers from across Quotient Sciences organisation have been working with the festival team to develop exciting medicine-related activities for a local primary, FE college and for members of the public.

Peter Scholes, Quotient Sciences’ Chief Scientific Officer said “We’re delighted to be participating in the festival and have the opportunity to show our continued support for this important community event. As a local science-based business originating in Nottingham 30 years ago we recognise the importance of stimulating interest and to demonstrate the positive & valuable impact that science has on our everyday lives.

Among the Festival highlights is The Curiosity Show, reinvented from last year's Wollaton Watch, a series of five hour-long children’s TV shows broadcast live, 4-5pm on Notts TV, which will feature live science demonstrations, interviews and try-at-home activities, as well as exploring all things curious across Nottinghamshire. The festival magazine is back for a second year with a brand new look, exciting new content and a range of fun activities for all the family. 

Megan Shore, the festival producer said “We’re so excited to be able to work with Quotient Sciences to bring the festival back out into spaces across Nottingham and we’ve put together such an exciting lineup 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.”
