LATEST NEWS

We are delighted to announce incredibly exciting news this morning, as we confirm the opening of a new Science Centre at the Trinity Centre on Cambridge Science Park. This new Centre will provide unique opportunities for local families, visiting tourists and schools to access, discover and explore all aspects of STEM. Our new home will be an inspiring place that will make STEM more exciting and accessible to all.

This fantastic new venture results from a partnership between us,  Cambridge Science Park and Trinity College Cambridge and would not have been possible without the enthusiasm and support of our Executive Council members, Trustees, supporters, and all parties involved. Our thanks also go to the teams at Brockton Everlast, ARM and LifeArc as their support has played an invaluable part in making this project happen.

Our new Cambridge Science Centre will open on 23rd July.

Further details will be posted here and on our social media platforms as we near the opening date, including our family events, how to purchase our Annual Memberships, our School Visit programme and opportunities to support this sensational new space for our community.

Our Summer Shows

Bubble Science

Why are bubbles round? What makes them pop? What happens if they’re filled with something other than air? Answers to these questions, and some you didn’t even know you wanted to ask are in this fun, pop-tastic show!

Moonshot

Join the team at Mission Control Academy to learn about how rockets get into space with the help of rocket launchers, a space buggy, and a lot of fire! With the Artemis missions not so far in the future, who knows, you could join the astronauts travelling to the moon?

Boy listening

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!
