British Science Week

Saturday 14 March 2020

11am to 3pm

Located in the Cascades Shopping Centre

Visit The Cascades Shopping Centre and explore the science behind D-Day and Landing Craft Tanks, with a host of family friendly activities for British Science Week.

The D-Day Story is on tour with a pop up museum led by Mad Science with an array of exciting and interactive events at The Cascades Shopping Centre. This event is part of the national celebration to honour the great scientific work being done across Britain, and to encourage the next generation to pick up Science Technology Engineering and Maths subjects.


Use simple materials to build tall towers and sturdy bridges, then test how much weight each part can hold. Next, learn out all about buoyancy and use this knowledge to build your own boat. Will yours stay afloat? Can it weather the storm and be ready for D-Day?

Free entry, just drop in.
