Street Science

Street Science started in December 2012 as part of the British Science Festival. A team took to the streets of Newcastle with STEM demonstrations to show the public.

In its first year, the Street Science 'busking' scheme delivered more than 15000 interactions to the public. The scheme has continued to grow.

We offer Street Science 'busking' on the streets of the city centre and workshops for various school groups.

We regularly support local events and festivals. We've also delivered events as far afield as London, Cheltenham, and even Hong Kong.

If you would Street Scientists to do some science busking at your event, please email outreach@ncl.ac.uk.
