Become a scientist for the weekend with The University of Portsmouth!

Last year, the University of Portsmouth went palaeo at Victorious with an installation of laser cut acrylic dinosaurs designed by students from the Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries.

This year, we’ll all be turned into scientists for the weekend with activities in the Science Tent. Make a visit to the tent to discover the world-leading research at the University.

In the 25 years since achieving university status, the University of Portsmouth has grown and changed in many ways. The University is now among the Guardian’s Top 40 UK Universities and is one of the best 100 universities in the Times Higher Education Young University World Rankings.

The University is undergoing a rebrand to reflect this evolution and to communicate its values, relationship to Portsmouth, and ambitions in higher education. If you’re going to the festival, you’ll be one of the first people to catch a glimpse of the University logo.

Keep your eyes peeled at the festival for the University’s students who’ll be snapping photos during the weekend. Check out the University’s social media feeds (Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat – @portsmouthuni) to see if you can spot yourself amongst the crowd. Remember to tag us in your posts so we can share them too.
