The hugely successful National Science and Engineering Week is back in 2015 with a new name and in our region it will continue to be part of the Sheffield Festival of Science and Engineering.

Organised jointly by Sheffield's two universities, the Festival will build on our world class research and emphasise the central role played by science and technology in our region.

Programmes for schools and the public - the Festival will support local schools and communities through an extensive programme of visits, events and activities.

Local and celebrity public lectures - a programme of inspiring celebrity speakers on science and engineering, as well as engaging local experts, taking place in venues across the city, including museums, science centres and industry locations.

Linking industry and education - through a wide range of inspirational activities, interesting presentations and exciting demonstrations.

Inspiring tomorrow's graduates - there will be the chance to visit many University departments, some of which will include an opportunity to gain hands-on experience.
