Cambridge Science Centre
Cambridge Science Centre (CSC) is the only year-round science centre in the East of England. It specialises in taking complex scientific messages and making them accessible, exciting & fun for young learners. Through a combination of informal STEM outreach in schools & communities and visits to the Cambridge Centre, CSC has engaged with ~400,000 young learners, their families & teachers since opening in 2013.
The Cambridge Science Centre is a venue for exhibitions, shows, workshops and talks: a place in which to discover, to create and to learn. It acts as a gateway into some of the amazing scientific research in this great city and from around the world.
We are a registered educational charity guided by three main principles:
- To develop and host exhibitions, events and outreach programmes which advance education and inspire young people to engage with science and technology.
- To provide a physical and online hub for public engagement with scientific research. To enhance the public understanding and debate around public policy and ethics related to scientific progress.
- To deliver targetted outreach and travelling exhibitions that will improve access to science and technology for underserved communities around Cambridgeshire and East Anglia.
