CONNECTING Through SCIENCE

Cambridge Science Centre is an educational charity which hosts hands-on exhibitions, workshops, shows and talks to get the public excited about science and technology. Our hub centre in Cambridge is open to schools and the public, and we take our unique interactive exhibits to schools and communities across the country through our outreach programme, On the Road. Watch our short film to find out more.
