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 Springing into Life
It's Spring! But what does that mean? In this fun show find out why days get longer, why it starts to warm up, and why animals have their young in Spring. Build an egg and discover out why they're so important. See which animals are the "springy-est" and can jump the furthest - can you jump further than an Elephant? Wait and see!
Make something a little different with our activities today!
