The Bug Hunt is a fun and interactive session which illustrates how microorganisms can be transferred from one surface to another, thereby showing the importance if infection control and hand washing. These sessions take place at SciFest during the Summer.
These activities evolve around the five senses - sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch e.g. blindfolding activity. These sessions will focus on Learning Disabilty Nursing and can be requested and are carried out in our highly equipped professional sensory room at Walsall Campus.
This event includes Children's University accreditation. Primary Sportfest is a fun-filled day of activities tailored for 7 - 11 year olds and usually takes place around Easter time.

Our annual Children's Conference works in collaboration with some of the university's partnership schools and usually takes place in July. The aim of the conference is to give children from Year 5 or 6 a taster day of life at university. At our debut Children's Conference last year we welcomed 120 eager primary school students, and adopted a vibrant 'Celebration of the Nations' these of activites led by initial teacher education trainees, university staff and current students. They successfully incorporated art, science, drama, maths trail, PE and music into activities such as Aboriginal art, Samba music and Brazilian Football.
This is to help young people reach their potential by getting them interested and thinking about their future paths.
The University of Wolverhampton recently hosted girls from local schools to help inspire them to positively engage in science based subjects.
Over 50 10 and 11 year old girls from local Primary schools visited the University for a ‘Girls 4 Science’ event that focused on engaging them in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects through interactive workshops and activities.
