Science in the Square

Science in the Square is an annual event that gives scientists from our Penryn Campus the ideal opportunity to share their knowledge, passion and expertise for science with the local community.

We take over Events Square for one day during Falmouth Week and give children of all ages the chance to experience the wonders of science, with...

  • Exciting talks about the research that’s happening right on their doorstep
  • Six interactive zones for them to visit and experience hands-on experiments
  • Face painting and a chance to get creative at the craft table
  • Live animals to see and hold
  • Opportunities to talk to real scientists and ask them questions

We believe that Science in the Square provides us with the perfect way to give something back to the local community that supports us in so many ways. It also gives us the ideal opportunity to showcase some of the research, ideas and people of which we are, rightly, proud.

This year’s event will take place Friday 11th August 2017, 12-4pm.
