An event showcasing the authentic research being undertaken by pupils in Nottingham primary and secondary schools

Each year, as part of the Nottingham Festival of Science and Curiosity, Ignite! brings together school pupils from across Nottingham and further afield to share their scientific research. Held at the Council House in Nottingham City Centre, it's a celebration of projects in which pupils are taking the lead and being able to conduct real research outside of the curriculum. 


Groups from ten primary schools and five secondaries showcased their work and were welcomed by Director of Education for Nottingham City Council, John Dexter. Pupils also had the opportunity to meet scientists from Quotient Sciences.


Groups from six schools showcased their work and listened to key note speeches from Director of GH Scientific, Hephzi Angela Tagoe and Director of the Institute for Research in Schools, Professor Becky Parker. Pupils also had the opportunity to meet scientists from the Nottingham Molecular Pathology Node.
