Southampton Science and Engineering Festival (SOTSEF) 2017 ran for an entire week from 10th-19th March to coincide with British Science Week. There were different science activities happening across the city of Southampton throughout the week. The largest and most anticipated event of SOTSEF was the fifteenth annual Science and Engineering Day which took place across the University of Southampton's Highfield and Boldrewood campuses on Saturday 18th March.

Southampton Science and Engineering Festival is the city's only week-long festival that celebrates both science and engineering through a programme of exciting events for families and adults. Throughout the week, SOTSEF has a line-up of talks and shows across the science spectrum in various venues in Southampton including the highlight of the SOTSEF calendar: Science and Engineering Day.

Our 2017 event saw over 7000 visitors join us across seven days worth of activities. This included: an evening of adult science comedy, a Researchers' Café special, a film night and a hands-on science showcase in West Quay.

We will be back in 2018.
