WHO ARE WE?
We are a community interest company seeking to inspire a new generation to love science, technology, engineering and maths. We:
enable the public to experience, investigate and enjoy hands-on science
provide science outreach to schools and community groups
forge links between local STEM-based businesses and the community
We have transformed an empty retail unit in Coronation Square (in the deprived neighbourhood of Hester's Way) into a hands-on science centre.
