Nottingham is playing host to the first ever UK science pop up shop this month. The project called 3-2-1-Ignition will be located in the Cornerhouse Centre and is designed to bring science and technology to the general public. The project, developed by education company Ignite! is based on other shops in the USA and London where education workshops are linked to themed retail outlets, but this is the first time a shop “selling” science and technology activities will be set up in the UK.
With demonstrations of cutting edge research and innovative technology members of the public will be able to take part in experiments and activities and discover more about science based industries and careers available in Nottingham.
Open from 15th – 31st October, for more information see http://ignitionpopupshop.wordpress.com
