Wonder: A Community Event to Amaze and Inspire

The University of Nottingham is throwing open its doors to curious minds for a day of hands-on fun. Wonder 2019 will showcase the best of what the University does, with an exciting schedule of free activities for all ages.

We are inviting families to explore the huge range of research and teaching activities that will be celebrating the 150th year of the periodic table.  All activities will have a fun link to the elements and range from art workshops through to science experiments. 

A full programme of activities is available on the Wonder webpages. The day is fully-packed so it’s a good idea to make a note of any timed activities you want to see as these are often very popular and spaces can fill up quickly.

We can’t wait to share our day of Wonder with you.

See the full programme on the University website

Wonder will take place across University Park, see our event map for details.
