We want the Exeter Science Centre to be an invaluable resource for schools, to help supplement the curriculum, raise aspirations and boost enthusiasm for STEMM (science, tech, engineering, maths and medicine).
To help us demonstrate that there is demand for a Science Centre in Exeter, please pledge your support for the project – we’ll list our pledged schools here on the website soon.
We’re offering various activities for schools, including STEMM research-inspired workshops and special events. You can view our current and upcoming events below, and sign up to our termly newsletter and follow us on social media to keep updated. If there’s anything in particular that you’d like us to offer, please get in touch!

COVID-19 Vaccine: Ask the Experts
We’re producing a special set of YouTube videos where the experts answer questions from school students. We’ll try to answer as many as we can, but we might have to choose the most frequently-asked questions if we have lots coming in. Please send us your questions, each with a first name + age of the student who’s asking the question (or the class name + year group) along with the name of the school, by Friday 29th January 2021!
Using light to detect cancer
In this 1-lesson, hands-on workshop, we explain how physicists at the University of Exeter are detecting oesophageal cancer, in their research funded by Cancer Research UK.
We explore travelling waves, standing waves, sound waves in solids, and electromagnetism. Suitable for GCSE / A-level students.
