COMMUNITY CURIOSITY LABS
Events in local libraries, social and community centres that show how science can be fun, exciting and a part of our everyday lives
The Aspley, Bulwell and Clifton areas of Nottingham are places that do not receive much attention or opportunity and we are determined to change that by running regular 'labs' full of science experiments, where children and their families can explore the science questions that matter to them.
Working with Nottingham City Homes and scientists from the University of Nottingham, we piloted the Community Curiosity Labs over the summer of 2015, in the Strelley and Aspley neighbourhoods. Children and their families explored science questions, through a series of fun experiments. It had an immediate impact on the community and the events were positively received by
all the young people who attended.
Our vision is to bring regular Community Curiosity Labs to these neighbourhoods where we will run science experiments with children and their families. We believe that Community Curiosity Labs are a great way of communicating science ideas, and involving children and families in a deeper understanding of some of the discoveries that are changing our world.
