We’ve had a lovely time! Staff were brilliant and the activities were fantastic 🙂

Welcome to our new Centre

Our incredible new space is nestled in the heart of the Cambridge Science Park at the Trinity Centre. Cambridge Science Centre is situated on the ground floor, it is easily accessible for those travelling by car, train and bus and via a safe and well-used walking route.

Families can visit us at weekends and during school holidays, when they will have the opportunity to explore a range of over 20 new, open-ended and fun hands-on exhibits.  Plus, we have new shows to enjoy AND new Lab and Workshop spaces where young people can experiment and challenge themselves with new concepts.

Our experienced Science Communicators will be on hand to welcome you and support your children as they take up each new challenge.

Although we predominately cater for children aged between 5 – 13 years, younger siblings are welcome too. There will be plenty for them to do and explore!

Gums to Bum

Discover what happens from the moment food enters the mouth, all the way until it reaches the toilet. See a series of gruesome demos, which need several volunteers to help along the way.

Sonic Science

How do we hear sound? How does it reach our ears? Why do we have two ears? We don’t really ask questions about something that we take for granted, but that just makes it more fascinating when we answer them for you! Find out more about sound, how it travels, how we hear it and why in space, nobody can hear you scream!
