CRC is helping local people to explore the wonders of Science


Monday 25 February 2019



Cambridge Regional College is playing a key role in the Cambridge Science Festival this year.

The event provides the public with opportunities to explore and discuss issues of scientific interest and concern and raises aspirations by encouraging young people to consider a career in science, technology, engineering or mathematics.


Each year, the Festival welcomes visitors to hundreds of events and receives extensive national and local media coverage. Over 170 event co-ordinators organise talks, interactive demonstrations, hands-on activities, film showings and debates with the assistance of around 1,000 staff and students from departments and organisations across Cambridge University and research institutions, charities and industry in the eastern region. In addition, over 150 people volunteer their time to act as stewards to ensure visitors have a safe and enjoyable experience.

CRC is running a series of science experiments at its Cambridge Campus in Kings Hedges Road on Tuesday 12 March 2019 from 5.00pm covering Chemistry and Physics. Members of the public can take part in a series of science experiments based around important discoveries, including how to make a fertiliser and extracting chemicals from natural materials.

In the discovery physics exhibition, visitors will see chains that levitate, balls that won’t be moved, how to make a fortune, magic with colour and with mirrors, how to make string shoot, some brain-teasers to solve and a whole lot more too!

In addition to the science experiments, stay for a biology talk afterwards from 7.00pm.

Come and join us at CRC and have some surprising scientific fun with us. You can register your interest in one of the sessions from 5.00pm by calling 01223 418551.

Cambridge Regional College offers full time science courses, Access to Science courses as routes to university and higher study, apprenticeships and has recently launched a new Forensic Science and Criminal Investigation full time course.
