Discovery Night returned to the University of Sheffield on Friday 10 March 2017 and we had a blast!

With talks, presentations and hands on activities on everything from astronomy to zoology to the chemistry of the foods we eat and the magic of magnetism - great fun was had by all. To find out what happened, you can view the full programme here. The event, which is aimed at primary school children aged 4-11 years, has been growing in popularity year on year and this year was no different.


Thank you to everyone who was part of the evening, you were fantastic and don't just take our word for it. Here is some feedback from our attendees.

We liked the python and the quiz in the museum and the rainforest games and holding a cockroach.

I liked the jungle room, roller coaster marble and I want to come back again!

Amazing learning opportunity- should have it more than once a year!

I liked the robot, slime and microscopes. I really liked Discovery Night and I learned a lot, and best of all it was free! Thank you!

The staff and students who were at the event were great….. enthusiastic, interesting and engaged the children.

Thank you. It was amazing. I learnt a lot about science and I'm looking forward to it next time!

I liked the roller coaster and mum liked the millipede.

Very interesting and engaging as well as informative. All in all a very wholesome experience.

Thank you to everyone who gave their time. Lots of enthusiastic stall holders, very patient. We had a great time!
