Science Alive

Science Alive is a charity promoting learning in Harlow and the Eastern Region, particularly around Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths

Founded 2004

  • Mission statement

    Science Alive exists to promote the excitement of Science Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). Our target age-group is from 4-104 years of age, but we have a particular appeal for children and young people, who enjoy our hands-on approach to activities and to learning.

    We provide outreach activities for schools and community groups and run workshops and exhibitions at our learning gallery (opened June 2010).
    Our staffing includes volunteers, work-experience students, pro bono management and a small team of presenters. The gallery was purpose-built within a leisure complex with the support of countless individuals, generous company donations and grant funding, totaling over £1m in fundraising over the last decade.

    We aim to involve up to 50,000 people a year in experiences that change their view of science and engineering: our strapline is simply "Bringing Learning to Life! "
