ALL ABOUT US
Cambridge Science Centre is an educational charity based in Cambridge. We want every young person to enjoy and explore Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). At our Centre, we offer unique hands- on, interactive experiences, shows and activities which are delivered by our professional science communicators.
Why not explore our fun, memorable, educational experiences by joining us each weekend and during school holidays. Keep checking out our ‘What’s On’ page for activities.
Please note that we now operate a cashless system only at our Centre.
Our special sessions include our carefully crafted Home Educator sessions and STEMtots sessions for pre-schoolers. View our ‘What’s On’ page to find out more. These sessions require booking.
Why not sign up to our newsletter for regular updates?
Bring science to life with a visit to our Science Centre. With plenty of shows and workshops to choose from, your hardest decision will be which option to choose! We offer school visits throughout the week.
Alternatively, our team of experienced science communicators can bring our shows and workshops to your classroom.
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.
