A week-long festival of events, bringing Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths to the Nottingham public.

The Nottingham Festival of Science and Curiosity (FOSAC) became an independent company from Ignite! in 2019 after being created and managed by us for several years. We are delighted to continue on as the contracted producers of the festival.

FOSAC is primarily a week long festival which takes Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths out of the lab and into our everyday lives. The festival is about inviting the people of Nottingham to share not only what they know, but also what they would like to know; it’s about celebrating curiosity, asking questions and taking a leading role in finding out the answers.

The festival gives an opportunity for all the different institutions in Nottingham to engage the public with their work and inspire more people to take an interest in STEM in a creative way.
