We are open for schools and clubs!

For schools and teachers

The Science Centre is now open for school visits – or we can come to you!  If you prefer, we are continuing to run our VirtualSchoolTrip programme.

For Home Educators, our new programme starts on 21st May.

Running for nine weeks, you can book either individual sessions or block book them all..

Home Educator sessions are aimed at children aged 7-11 years.  Due to the remaining covid-19 restrictions, all sessions must be booked.

STEMtots is the perfect session for the youngest scientists!

These regular sessions are aimed at children aged from 2-years.  Find out more on our ‘What’s on’ page.

#STEMclub – our popular afterschools club

#STEMclub runs each Thursday evening with each session based on a STEM theme. Attend an individual session or block book.  Why not join in the fun?

Summer Fun!

Our public sessions will restart on Saturday July 26th and run throughout the summer holidays.  Sign up to our newsletter for regular updates.

Cambridge Science Centre

Spark, Ignite, Fuel, Illuminate

Our interactive, hands-on science centre is at the heart of Cambridge. We are a fun space for discovery – a place where children and young people can get their hands on science, try stuff out and learn all about the principles and mysteries of ourselves, our planet and beyond.

Freely explore our Gallery, take in a show, or get involved with an activity.

You’re in charge – We’re here for your Community, your School, and even for when you’re At Home. So, come and join us as we explore our world!


The UK desperately needs more scientists: four in ten UK employers have problems recruiting staff with science and maths skills. But by age 11, most young people are already turned off science.

This is where we step in. We have got over 300,000 young people excited about science since 2013. And we are really good at reaching those young people who wouldn’t naturally be interested in science. What’s more, our entry cost is only half that of other science centres.
