Exeter Science Centre is an educational charity dedicated to public engagement with STEAMM (science, tech, engineering, arts, maths and medicine).

We work on projects related to global issues, highlight their local relevance through collaboration with research, industry and local organisations, and empower people to play a role in mitigating them. In parallel, we’re creating a network of science centres in the South West.
