Southampton Science and Engineering Festival (SOTSEF) is the University of Southampton's award-winning annual science festival that allows everyone to explore and discover what the world of science and engineering has to offer.

Due to many requests from researchers and the public, SOTSEF 2020 is back with a fresh digital twist as 'SOTSEF Goes Digital'!

SOTSEF Goes Digital runs from Friday 22 May until Saturday 25 July 2020 with a variety of different activities, from downloadable resources, virtual tours, talks, podcasts and blogs to live debates, performances and Q&A sessions, to citizen science projects.

To watch, listen to, interact and contribute to the SOTSEF digital content, just follow the bubbles with the satellite dish icon.

The website also lists all other events that were available on campus last March. This gives you the opportunity to see what is on offer during SOTSEF at the University of Southampton and across the city.

The full programme of events will be gradually released throughout the weeks of the festival. Follow us on social media #SOTSEF to stay up-to-date.

Last March, SOTSEF and Southampton Science and Engineering Day 2020 were suddenly postponed due to the increasing threat posed by COVID-19. Now you can enjoy some of the best and most engaging activities that the festival has to offer directly from the safety and comfort of your house.

Join us and discover the amazing with SOTSEF Goes Digital.
