About the event
Welcome to our Chatteris PopUpScience Centre.
We are open for families and young people each Saturday and Sunday from 10.00am to 3.30pm. Drop in and join us at any time - entry is FREE.
We will be discovering different scientific concepts through our shows and activities each day in a fun and interactive way. There will be plenty of time to explore our hands-on exhibits too, and our Science Communicators will be on hand to answer any questions you have.
Join in with our show
11am Same but different
Meet Darwin and his family - why do they look alike? And how come we all look a bit the same - but different? Look into his famous voyage on The Beagle and how that helped him formulate his theory of evolution. Packed full of fun games and demos, this show gives you a chance to be a part of a 5 billion year old story!
Have a go at our take-home activity
2pm Fabulous Fungi
Bold and vibrant fungi are found in nearly every garden, but what we witness above ground are just the beautiful fruiting buds. However, what about their hidden underground network of hyphae? Find out how fungi are responsible for playing a huge part in our ecosystems, and are one of the unsung heroes of the natural world.
Children must be accompanied by a parent or carer at all times. Most suitable for children aged 7-11 years. Younger siblings will be able to join in with some adult support.
You will find us on the First Floor. You can take either the lift or the stairs!
