Event Details


Today, we are open from 10.30am to 5.00pm

Come along throughout the day to explore our interactive exhibits and take part in today’s Christmassy festive shows and activities.

No need to book!

Today’s shows:

11.00am     Gums to Bum – What happens to your Christmas dinner?

Take a tour through the digestive system; observe what happens from the moment your Christmas dinner enters your mouth, all the way until it reaches the toilet! See a series of revolting demos and even volunteer to help the process along the way.

14.30pm    The Same but Different

Meet Darwin and his family – why do they look alike? And how come we all look a bit the same – but different? Look into his famous voyage on The Beagle and how that helped him formulate his theory of evolution. Packed full of fun Christmas games and demos, this show gives you a chance to be a part of a 5 billion year old story!

Make something a little different to take home with you!

12.30pm   DNA Paperchains

Brightly coloured paper chains to decorate your home this Christmas. But, these aren’t just any colours! The DNA of your favourite Christmas animals and plants inspire your unique decorations!

16.00pm   Melting snowmen

Snowmen are a must at Christmas. Don’t worry if there’s no snow, you can still build – and then melt – a snowman at Cambridge Science Centre!
