The Cambridge Science Centre is an innovative hands-on science exhibition and activity space for families and schools. The Centre has a portable, modular and compact format, allowing it to set up and operated in schools and town centres. This is a very cost effective way to bring inspiring hands-on science out to communities which don’t normally have access to fun, local and very high-quality STEM enrichment activities. The Centre opened in February 2011, and the Duke became Patron of the Centre in 2014.Visit Website

The Duke of York’s day in Cambridge started at Cambridge Science Centre (CSC), an independent Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) charity, which provides hands-on, experiences in STEM learning.
As Patron of the charity, His Royal Highness received a tour of their headquarters and was shown a number of the exhibits. CSC’s hands-on displays are completely mobile, which allows them to transform an empty space into a hands-on science centre within a few hours. Since opening in 2013, they have reached almost 300,000 people, visited more than 300 schools and held 100 street science pop events.
Next, The Duke visited Hughes Hall, which is a College of the University of Cambridge of which His Royal Highness is an Honorary Fellow. Hughes Hall launched their new research impact initiative, The Bridge, which facilitates connections between academic experts and policymakers, practitioners and industry leaders to promote dialogue, understanding and innovation.
The Duke joined a discussion that explored links between entrepreneurship and The Bridge subject areas: Climate Change Engagement; 100 Healthy Years; Regulating the Digital Economy; and Oracy and Teaching Philosophy.
The final visit of the day was at Raspberry Pi, who have created a small and affordable computer that enables anyone to learn programming. His Royal Highness is Patron of the foundation who, since their launch in 2012, have sold more than 25 million computers and over a million young people have engaged in their programmes.
The Duke was able to meet a number of the staff and learn more about their latest developments, including the ‘Astro Pi’, which has been developed by Raspberry Pi and the European Space Agency and allows students to code a special display to be played on the International Space System.Visit Website
