Since 2013, we've welcomed over 99,000 visitors to Cambridge Science Centre and more through our outreach work into communities. We pride ourselves on offering exceptional shows, workshops and unique exhibits which allow anyone to tap into their playful and inquisitive nature.
Cambridge has such a strong history and future in scientific and technology innovation, it is the perfect place to introduce families, children, young pupils, teachers and engage companies and their employees in real-life science communication.
Our mission, as a children's educational charity, is to deliver gold-standard hands-on STEM (Science, Technology, Education and Mathematics) education, inspire and sustain learning through a network of community science centres and showcase Cambridge science and innovation whilst reaching out regionally, nationally, and eventually, internationally.
We are always looking for people and organisations who believe in our mission and are willing to join forces to make it happen. If you are interested in working in partnership, please get in touch.
We're passionate about sharing the science behind our exhibits, and encouraging learning through play and exploration. All of our staff share an infectious excitement for science and education.Meet our board members and team
