This weekend saw the ninth Science in the Park event find place at the grand venue of Wollaton Hall. Although the weather took a turn for the worse, the enthusiasm and passion for science was not dampened, with over 4000 visitors through the doors!
People of all ages enjoyed the science, technology, engineering and mathematics outreach event organised by the Nottinghamshire British Science Association (BSA) branch.
Thanks to Wollaton Hall, all the exhibitors, sponsors and of course, all of you for coming!
See you next year 🙂
