  • Mission statement

    At-Bristol’s vision is to make science accessible to all. We aim to inspire and develop curiosity within our visitors, encouraging them to investigate and engage with science and technology and enabling them to place this within the world around us. We work to improve formal and informal science education across the country.

    A school visit to At-Bristol provides every child with an important opportunity to learn outside the classroom by providing an interactive and engaging environment designed to encourage exploration and spark creativity.

    We want to stimulate young people’s interest in the world around them through providing innovative, hands-on exhibits and an exciting learning programme that inspires young minds by bringing science to life.
