The National Space Centre
The National Space Centre is the UK’s largest attraction dedicated to space exploration and space science. We receive around 220,000 visitors each year of which about 65,000 are from schools.
Black Country Atelier
Originally founded in Shropshire, Black Country Atelier is a 3D prototyping workshop now based in the Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham, UK.
We travel around the country sharing our enthusiasm for technologies that make stuff and delivering tailor-made events and workshops for schools and cultural venues
The Atelier’s 3D Factory is an affordable space where people can use and explore the latest technologies available. We have a set of easy-to-use 3D printing and scanning tools that everyone from designers through to hobbyists can use.

Royal Society of Chemistry
The RSC will be bringing along their equipment to show how explosive careers in chemistry can be! The RSC works in education, science policy, conferences and the public promotion of chemistry.
Society of Biology
Come along and find out more about biology and the variety of jobs available in the subject! Our vision is of a society that understands the true value of biology and how it can contribute to improving life for all.
The Zooniverse began with a single project, Galaxy Zoo, launched in July 2007. The Galaxy Zoo team had expected a fairly quiet life, but were overwhelmed and overawed by the response to the project. Once they'd recovered from their server, which was buckling under the strain, they set about planning the future!
Galaxy Zoo was important because not only was it incredibly popular, but it produced many unique scientific results and we are committed to producing real research.
The Institution of Civil Engineers - Bridge to Schools project
The Bridge to Schools project was successfully launched in 2009. We aim to make children more aware of the work of civil engineers and their contribution to society. The project involves pupils building a 12.5m long cable-stayed bridge within an hour session.
First Step Workshops
We run nationwide vocational science workshops featuring a forensic crime scene investigation. Every student plays a part and First Step hope to inspire your students about science and give them a science lesson they won't forget!
Also featuring CIWEM, UKSEDS, Caterpillar UK and the Science Learning Centre!
