Inspiring the next generation

We are passionate about actively engaging with the local community, and inspiring young learners to consider a career in science.

By opening our doors to school and youth groups, we provide learners with unique, inspiring experiences, enabling them to participate in interactive science workshops and meet working scientists.

  • Interactive sessions designed by an education expert

  • Experience what it is like to be a scientist

  • Widen career aspirations

  • Visits available for primary and secondary aged learners

  • 12 minute walk from Temple Meads – get to us by public transport rather than a coach
