Festival volunteers are the ambassadors of this event, helping the small team of 4 help visitors navigate the event, provide useful information making them feel welcomed and excited at the Festival. The support of Festival volunteers is integral to the delivery of this event which saw over 7,000 students onsite in just 2 weeks in 2017! Our volunteers are the face, heart and soul of the Festival; they are the embodiment of enthusiasm and science personified!
