About the event

Welcome to our Wisbech PopUpScience Centre.

We will be open from 10:30am to 2:45pm so families will be able to enjoy free entry to explore our hands-on STEM-based exhibits, join in with our shows or have a go at one of our activities.

Today's Show

11:00am    Evoolution

Evolution involves a lot of randomness, but how can that change a population? In this show, we will explore the concepts of evolution and variation. Have a look at cats and variations that may (or may not) be inherited by their kittens. 

Today's Activity

1:30pm      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.

Find us at the old ARGOS shop from 10:30am - 2:45pm 

Drop in anytime and one of our Communicators will be on hand to guide you through a journey of hands on exploration. No need to book.

Supported by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority

Children must be accompanied by a parent or carer at all times. Our weekend sessions are aimed at children from 7-11 years.
