On Monday 29 February, we will invite members of the public to show their support and help our Community Curiosity Labs take a great leap forward. We'll be asking you all to cast a vote for us. What are The Community Curiosity Labs?
In Nottingham, Aspley, Bulwell, and Clifton are places that do not receive much attention or opportunities so we want to change that and run regular workshops (labs) full of science experiments for children and their families.
Working with Nottingham City Homes and scientists from the University of Nottingham, Ignite! tested The Community Curiosity Labs over the summer of 2015 in the Strelley and Aspley neighbourhoods. Children and their families explored science questions in a series of fun experiments. It had an immediate impact. Many people think that science is difficult and not for them. However, everyone is curious about something and that's what drives the Community Curiosity Labs - we invite all kinds of questions that children can come up and will help families learn and discover together. Community Curiosity Labs, which take place in local libraries, social and community centres, show that science can be fun, exciting and is part of our everyday lives. Stayed tuned for our big announcement and call for action on Monday 29th February at 9am. Let's help spark the curiosity of more people and bring some fun and experimenting to the community.
