In celebration of Cardiff Science Festival, join us this half term at our free Be a Scientist! event.

Being a scientist can mean so many different things. We want to give you a flavour of what different scientists do and how science affects our everyday lives.

We’ve planned a fun day full of interactive activities and interesting experiments for you to experience what being a Scientist is like. We've got magnetic motors, electrical engineering, mind boggling puzzles, top-secret workshops you can book on the day and much more – even sciences you may have never heard of!

There's something here for everyone, no matter if you're 10 or 100! We’re excited to introduce some brilliant minds from across the University and some friendly local businesses, including CSA Catapult, who are sure to spark your imagination!...Perhaps you could be an Engineer of the future?

Café facilities are available for snacks, lunch or even a slice of cake. There is limited paid parking around the area so why not park up at the museum and have a day out! Travelling by Cardiff Bus, you can find us on bus routes 21, 24, 27, 35.

sbarc|spark building is accessible and all activities will take place on the ground floor. If you have any specific accessibility requirements, please get in touch –

We can't wait to meet some future scientists - see you there!
