Summer Scientist is a morning or afternoon of free fun activities aimed at children between 3 to 10 years old. The event takes place in the Sarah Swift Building, situated on the Brayford Pool Campus of the University. A team of trained student volunteers, researchers and academics play games with children in the Fun-Zone and ask them to take part in research studies which we call research ‘games’. These research ‘games’ are fun activities for children to enjoy, but they also allow experts at the university to learn about how children develop.
