Festival of Science and EngineeringThe Sheffield Festival of Science & Engineering is a series of over 60 free, public events taking place throughout March.

Come along and find out about the fantastic science and engineering in our region – learn about breaking speed records, the disease behind the ice bucket challenge and how our personal data is really being used.

The events take place in university labs and lecture theatres, museums, libraries, parks, cemeteries and even a brewery!
