COSMOS, powered by Cambridge Science Centre, is joining forces with the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk to deliver amazing interactive science, that you really need to come and see.

Cambridge Science Centre has teamed up with the Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Enterprise Partnership (LEP) to provide King’s Lynn families with fantastic, hands-on science through a COSMOS Roadshow during October half term from 22 - 29 October 2017.  
The COSMOS Roadshow team will be bringing an exciting collection of their most popular hands-on, space themed exhibits to the Shakespeare Barn located in the St George’s Guildhall complex. The pop-up exhibition will include favourites such as the Gravity Well, along with drop-in activities to inspire children, young people and their families about science. 

Opening times

The exhibition is FREE to the public. It's open from Sunday 22 - Sunday 29 October 2017, during the following times:

  • Monday to Saturday: 10am - 4pm
  • Sundays: 11am - 4pm  

About COSMOS Roadshow

COSMOS Roadshow is dedicated to opening up a world of possibility in communities across East Anglia, engaging people of all ages with hands-on experiences of science, technology, engineering and maths - known as STEM. According to the ASPIRES report from King’s College London, just 15% of young people aspire to be scientists. However, studies show that preconceptions of what STEM may involve can deter young people from entering further education in these fields. Cambridge Science Centre is committed to showing families that STEM provides a platform for children to use their imaginations to discover new innovations.
Helen Slaski, CEO of Cambridge Science Centre, said: “We are thrilled to be returning to King’s Lynn for October half term. We are passionate about making STEM accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds; encouraging creativity, investigation and discovery. In King’s Lynn we are combining the best of our previous exhibitions with fantastic hands-on activities, sparking imaginations and inspiring young minds.” 

Laura Welham-Halstead, Head of Communications & Connectivity at the Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough LEP, added: “The COSMOS Roadshow is a must attend event for local families. Their engaging and hands-on exhibits really bring science, technology, engineering and maths skills to life in a fun and entertaining way.”

The fun doesn’t stop there with Cambridge Science Centre’s FREE online membership. Exploring a different theme each month, COSMOS Online provides exciting challenges and interactive activities for all the family to enjoy. Find out more here: Cambridge Science Centre website.
