The University’s public engagement activities play a key role in our approach to the Sustainable Development Goals.

Here’s a wider showcase of our work addressing Goal 9.


Our annual ScienceX festival is a flagship off-campus event run by our Faculty of Science and Engineering. The festival strives to inspire the upcoming generations of scientists and engineers through an array of fun and captivating workshops and activities that offer a genuine insight into science and engineering. Previous years have included science tricks to dancing robots, meteorites, building towers and making graphene.
