Space to discover expands in new home
Offering a space to get hands-on with science and tech through unique exhibits, shows and workshops, Cambridge Science Centre unveiled its new home at Cambridge Leisure Park in recent weeks. Launched in 2013 with a goal of making science fun and accessible, the Centre welcomed more than 99,000 guests through its doors at its old location on Jesus Lane, and the team are looking forward to continuing their mission at their new, bigger and better premises.
“Our new home is absolutely marvellous,” enthuses Chris White, a science communicator at Cambridge Science Centre. “It is light and spacious, with much more space for exhibitions than in our previous space at Jesus Lane, as well as a dedicated show area. We have had a fantastic time introducing our new space and exhibits during our launch event, and we look forward to welcoming schools and families from the region to the revamped and rejuvenated Cambridge Science Centre!”
As an education charity, the centre is dedicated to finding innovative ways to engage young people with science and get them thinking about science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers. The new centre is now open to the public from Tuesdays to Fridays between 3pm and 5.30pm and Saturdays to Sundays between 10.30am and 5pm, as well as every day from Tuesday to Sunday during school holidays.
