Curiosity is a project which engages young people with science in informal out-of-school settings


Supported by a collaboration between Children in Need and Wellcome, we worked with the Renewal Trust in this project which uses science to encourage young people to be curious and confident and develop their life skills.  ​

We worked with lots of different groups across Nottingham, including Youth & Play groups, the SEND youth club, the Brendon Lawrence Sports Summer Camp and the Refugee Forum. Some groups we worked with regularly over a period of months, others in a more intense period during the summer holidays. The kinds of activities we do are inspired by questions that come from the young people themselves and we work together to find out the answers.
