Cambridge Science Centre has moved to a new state-of-the-art home on Cambridge Science Park, through a partnership with park owners, Trinity College.

The independent education charity, which has reached half a million young people in its first 10 years, will start operating from its new home next month.

Cambridge Science Centre’s new permanent location complements the charity’s very essence, with a focus on bringing the joy and intrigue of imaginative, interactive Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) to children and families, making STEM more accessible to everyone..

John Bull, CEO of Cambridge Science Centre, said: “This new location feels like our spiritual home. It further strengthens our connections with the STEM ecosystem and brings communities to the very heart of science and technology in Cambridge.

“Cambridge Science Centre is the perfect setting for educational school trips and family days out. Through our interactive, real-world STEM experiences, we enable children to explore the many wonders of science in a fun as well as an educational way and introduce them to the many diverse possibilities available to them, on their doorstep and beyond.”

Jamie Trivedi-Bateman, Director of Investment, Property, at Trinity College, Cambridge - which owns Cambridge Science Park - commented: “Introducing Cambridge Science Centre into Cambridge Science Park is part of our wider vision for the Park. When it comes to unlocking scientific, technological, and educational progress, Trinity understands the vital importance of making meaningful connections. This is at the core of the science park concept that Trinity pioneered when it originally founded Cambridge Science Park.

“Cambridge Science Centre enables young people, families in the community, and cutting-edge businesses to connect with each other in new ways – and this is something Trinity believes will benefit all involved.”

Cambridge Science Park is home to 170 world-leading STEM companies employing 7,000 people. However, according to Universities UK, the UK will need more than 1.9 million additional STEM professionals by 2035.
