Cambridge Science Centre
Cambridge Science Centre is the only year-round, interactive children’s science centre in the East of England.
Our vision is of a world where every child can experience adventures in science that inspire them to do well in their life and make a positive contribution to their communities. We achieve this through fun and intriguing hands-on science interventions delivered by our professional science communicators and rigorously tested science exhibits.
We also operate an extensive outreach programme, targeting young learners in areas of multiple deprivation, and bringing Cambridge-quality STEM engagement to children most at risk of missing out on STEM participation.
Our unique and award-winning approach is working. Since 2013, we have sparked the scientific curiosity of ~450,000 young learners, and provided support for children, parents and teachers alike. As an independent charity we are reliant on the support of like minded organisations and individuals.cambridgesciencecentre.org
