The mission of our science centre is to make science accessible to learners of all ages in a fun and entertaining way and in doing this raise science awareness.

We grab all the opportunities to link daily experiences, technology and special events to science. The IYC is a wonderful opportunity to be part of a global awareness regarding the importance of chemistry. We are planning different projects - from puppet shows to periodic table puzzles and chemistry science shows and workshops for all ages.
