Volunteer with us...

As an educational charity, we work with our local communities to help us create a future where everyone is included, curious and inspired to build a better world together. 

Volunteers are a hugely important part of the work we do and help us bring science to life in a variety of ways.

By joining our volunteer programme you will meet new people, share and gain new skills as well as have fun! Our volunteer opportunities are flexible and varied. You can choose from a wide range of opportunities including working with our visitors in our exhibition spaces, supporting school workshops, helping with our shop as well as getting out and about with the team at local community venues and events.
