Launched in 2010, Dundee Science Festival has grown to be one of the largest events in Tayside. Taking place every November, the Festival aims to engage and inspire the whole community through its celebration of science and lifelong learning across the city of Dundee - attracting people from all ages and backgrounds.


Dundee Science Festival 2017 will take place between 28 October and 12 November, with a key objective to increase science in the community and to widen access to science. We at Dundee Science Centre deliver Dundee Science Festival with the belief that everyone, regardless of age and background, should be able to experience and enjoy science. Community engagement is always at the heart of our festival and we aim to place a large focus on engagement with hard to reach audiences in areas of deprivation in Dundee. Our community events are designed to bring new topics to those who may not have a previous connection with the festival or with science in general.
