University of Nottingham Psychology department’s Summer Scientist Week 2022

The event will take place 29th-30th July and 2nd-4th August at the Engineering and Science Learning Centre, University Park, The University of Nottingham.

Throughout the week children aged between 4-17 years old will get to spend half a day taking part in a range of research games and other fun activities. 

There will also be a more relaxed session running on the afternoon of Saturday 30th July for neurodiverse and disabled children who may benefit from a relaxed environment to allow them to engage in the activities in a quieter, more accessible manner.

They will also once again be running the Summer Scientist Online event. Throughout August children will be able to take part in a range of research games and other fun activities via the website, at any time.

For students and their families to find more information visit the University website page, and to book a place on a Summer Scientist Week session, follow the booking link.
