Techfest, a unique festival of technology and science, was first held in 1994. It takes place across Aberdeen in a number of venues, including the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre.
Now stretching to nearly a fortnight, Techfest gives visitors the chance to find out about nature, food, science fiction, how local industries and services work and - of course - fireworks! A packed schedule includes guided tours, lectures, workshops, activities and shows, proving without a doubt that science is both exciting and approachable. The first week of events is geared especially to school programmes.
