Have you ever wondered what Mars looks like, what your skin’s made of, how planes can fly, why T-rex had tiny arms or how Vikings fought? These are just some of the questions that will be explored at Wonder 2017.

The University of Nottingham is throwing open its doors to curious minds for a day of hands-on fun. Wonder will see University Park transformed into a land of discovery and adventure with a packed schedule of free activities for all ages!
