The festival showcasing science, technology, engineering, and maths, is hoping to get young people exploring, experimenting, and asking questions about the world around them.

The Bridge in Worksop and Bassetlaw Museum in Retford are among the locations hosting interactive, fun, free workshops between the 12th and 16th of February.
