Researchers’ Night opens our doors to the public so you can find out about the research that goes on at the University of Sheffield. Our top researchers will be talking about and demonstrating their work – everything from astronomy to history, engineering to psychology.
There will be talks, demonstrations and hands on activities. Events are aimed at secondary school students, sixth formers and adults. The event is completely free and no booking is required.
Firth Hall exhibition
Exhibition stands will be running all evening in Firth Hall.
Alfred Denny Building exhibition
Swarm robotics works to harness the power of the insect world. These small, simple robots act in the same way as honey bees do when choosing their future nest. Like honey bees, the small but collaborative robots operate without any central control to explore their environment and make collective decisions. Come and see the Sheffield swarm in action at Firth Hall.
Firth Court exhibitions
Animal and Plant Sciences exhibitions
