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    Genome Explorers

Can you help our Genome Explorer track down a plant with potential medicinal properties? The show tells the story of a researcher in the field, collecting and tracking down samples of a medicinal plant. The samples are sent to a lab for analysis, then passed on to a second person in the lab who explains what DNA is and how to ‘read’ it, and more.

Today's Activity

1:30pm      Dragon Genetics

Genetics is what makes you, you. None of us look exactly the same, but you might share charateristics with other members of your family. Find out how it all works by randomly choosing from a set of characteristics to build your own dragon.

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.
