Cambridge Science Centre



Cambridge Science Centre is dedicated to bringing science, technology, engineering and mathematics to life with fun, lively and hands-on activities.

Come & visit the centre

A visit to Cambridge Science Centre with a group of students is a great way of extending ideas across and beyond the school curriculum.

Our centre in the heart of Cambridge is open for pre-booked school visits every Monday - Friday morning in term time. When your group makes a booking and visits Cambridge Science Centre, they’ll enjoy exclusive access to the hands-on exhibits. You can also choose whichever fun and interactive workshop or show that works best for your group. Prices start from £100
