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. Thanks to all the students and schools that have sent in their questions. We’ll try to answer as many as we can, but we have a had a lot of questions so might have to choose the most frequently-asked questions. We’ll make the videos available as we produce them, so keep checking back in to our website!
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 simple harmonic oscillators, travelling waves, sound waves in solids, and electromagnetism. Suitable for GCSE / A-level students.
