Families have been stepping into the world of science during a special roadshow in Lynn this week.
A pop-up space exhibition was opened at the town hall yesterday, as part of the Cosmos roadshow initiative.
The show, which closes on Monday afternoon, is designed to provide practical experiences of science, technology, maths and engineering – collectively known as the STEM subjects – to children.
It aims to challenge any preconceived ideas youngsters may have about what it means to be a scientist.
The initiative is led by the Cambridge Science Centre, in conjunction with the Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Local Enterprise Partnership and the UK Space Agency.
The centre’s chief executive, Helen Slaski, said: “We are thrilled to be visiting King’s Lynn for the very first time.
“We are passionate about making STEM thrilling and accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds; encouraging creativity, investigation and discovery.
“We are combining the best of our previous exhibitions with fantastic hands-on activities, sparking imaginations and inspiring young minds.”
The display is open from 10am to 4.30pm each day and is due to close on Monday.
