Cambridge Science Centre has teamed up with the Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Local Enterprise Partnership (GCGP LEP) and the UK Space Agency to provide the families of King’s Lynn with a week of hands-on science through a COSMOS Roadshow this Easter holiday.

The COSMOS Roadshow team will be bringing an exciting collection of their most popular hands-on, space-themed exhibits to King’s Lynn Town Hall, located on Saturday Market Place. It will run from Tuesday 4 to Monday 10 opening from 10am until 4.30pm.

The pop-up exhibition will include favourites such as the Gravity Well, along with drop-in activities to help children, young people and their families understand the exciting range of careers linked to the UK’s space industries.

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.

We are passionate about making STEM thrilling and 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.”
