The Science Festival offers a range of programmes and activities exclusively to schools, all designed to enrich the curriculum and inspire pupils into the further study of science and think about the world they live in. 

If you are interested in organising a school visit to any of our events, please get in touch with us at or by calling 01223 766766.

Schools Zone

The Schools Zone invites pupils from across the eastern region to bring a display of their STEM projects to Cambridge Science Festival and present them to our Festival visitors. This is a wonderful opportunity for your pupils to ‘be the experts’ and show a large and diverse audience what tomorrow’s scientists are doing today!

Schools Roadshow

Monday 29 February – Friday 4 March

The Schools' Roadshows offer Cambridgeshire school pupils the chance to find out more about the exciting world of science. There are many different sessions available in this year’s Roadshow, with topics from Astronomy and Zoology to plant science and medicine. Speakers come from local industry, research institutes and from University of Cambridge departments. Academics and researchers are able to speak to student groups of various sizes and ages from Key Stage 1 and 2. 

Applications are now closed for 2016. We have had a wonderful response - over 40 schools throughout Cambridgeshire will be taking part this year.
