Launch into space – Watch custard armour in action – Hear your classroom hum

Cambridge Science Centre lets young-people experience Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths in action. Our enthusiastic science communicators and wonderful range of school shows and workshops, and hands-on exhibits bring science to life using resources that your school may not have in-house.

We are as flexible as possible, so that we can fit in with your students, your curriculum, and your timetable.
– You can visit our Cambridge Gallery, and explore our hands-on exhibits after an amazing show or workshop.
– We can come to you, bringing our shows and workshops into your classroom or school hall.
– Our School Roadshows can transform your school hall into an interactive science centre for a week, with each class experiencing a show, workshop, and exhibits!

Our interactive shows and workshops are focused on Yr 3-4, Yr 5-6, and Yr 7-8, although we have a little something for Yr 1-2 and Yr 9+ too! Choose from our shows and workshops, and various packages, to find something suitable for your students, your curriculum, and your timetable!

On our roadshows, we turn your school into a science centre for a week.

Our team of talented Science Communicators will set-up our interactive exhibits in your school hall (or similar), recreating our Gallery exhibition in your school. Each class then gets two sessions with us: One in the “science centre”, where they get to see a show and explore the exhibits; and a second in a classroom, where they get involved in one of our workshops.

We will fit in as many classes as your timetable allows! You can also invite other local schools or feeder primary schools to come in and join in too!

A roadshow is suitable for Yr 5-6 and Yr 7-8, although we can tailor the exhibits and activities to other years and groups too.
