About the event
Join us for some family fun at The Grand Arcade, Cambridge.
We will be exploring the seasonal changes as we move into Spring and discovering why it is the perfect season for growth and new life through our shows and activities.
Our hands-on, interactive exhibits will be available for you to investigate and learn more about the incredible world of engineering.
11.30am Choc full of Science
Indulge your senses as the Cambridge Science Centre team explores the science behind your favourite chocolate bar. Find out what it’s made of, how it’s made, what it does to you, and take part in some fun demonstrations - all in the name of chocolate and science!
2.30pm All Charged Up
Opposites attract - that's true even at the tiniest level. Find out how this is important in creating that little spark when you touch a metal object, and what that's got to do with lightening.
Make something a little different with our activities today!
12.30pm DNA Bracelets
We are all made of a remarkable individual code of genetic information, called DNA, which contains a set of instructions for our eye colour, hair colour and even our genders! Zoom in to DNA and get hands-on with a special craft activity to make a section of DNA from a selected species. Suitable for 6+ .
3.30pm Building Bridges
There are lots of bridges around Cambridge! In this activitiy, we take a look at the different types of bridges, the forces that act on them and might cause them to break, and how we can manipulate these to make bridges stronger. There's a take home activity, too!
