Inspiring the next generation

We are passionate about actively engaging with the local community, and inspiring children from all backgrounds to consider a career in science.

By opening our doors to groups of students on at least one day each month, we provide young learners with unique, inspiring experiences, enabling them to participate in interactive science workshops and meet working scientists.

The children also visit Engine Shed and Ultrahaptics to form a full-day STEM tour in central Bristol.

  • Interactive sessions designed by an education expert

  • Includes workshops kindly run by volunteers from Tocris, the BCFN and Carbometrics.

  • Experience a day as a scientist

  • Widen career aspirations

  • Transport for schools provided

  • Tour of Engine Shed and Ultrahaptics Offices
