Colchester Science Festival

« Other Public Destinations

Colchester has it's very own Science Festival on Saturday 18th March. It takes place at Colchester Royal Grammar School, 6 Lexden Road, Colchester CO3 3ND and runs between 10am and 4pm.  

A CU Learner visiting and participating in activities on the day will be awarded 2 hours of CU Learning in their Passport.  We understand that the activities are designed to cater for all ages and backgrounds and the organisers are hoping to attract multi-generational families to the festival!

There are lots of activities planned including a planetarium, 3D printing, a vintage car display, a practical forensic science lab, a bike-powered smoothie bar, liquid nitrogen demonstrations, petting zoo, robotics, a guest lecture, and fun interactive sessions taught by A-level students.  

Colchester Zoo will also be giving interactive workshops on the illegal wildlife trade.
