Cambridge Science Centre location

Cambridge has such a strong history and future in scientific and technology innovation, it is the perfect place to introduce families, children, young pupils, teachers and engage companies and their employees in real-life science communication.

The Centre's mission is to deliver gold-standard hands-on STEM education, inspire and sustain learning through a network of community science centres and showcase Cambridge science and innovation whilst reaching out regionally, nationally, and eventually, internationally.

They are always looking for people and organisations who believe in this mission and are willing to join forces to make it happen. If you are interested in working in partnership, please get in touch

Since 2013, the team has welcomed over 99,000 visitors to Cambridge Science Centre and more through their outreach work into communities. Cambridge Science Centre prides itself on offering exceptional shows, workshops and unique exhibits which allow anyone to tap into their playful and inquisitive nature.

 Some achievements to date:

  • Since opening in 2013, Cambridge Science Centre has reached over 130,000 people — over 99,000 in the Centre alone — with a range of interactive play and discovery exhibitions.
  • Through the COSMOS Roadshow and popular outreach days, they've popped up in over 20 local communities.

They're looking forward to meeting you in their new location!
