Jobs & Volunteering

We The Curious is an idea and a place for everyone. We’re all about asking questions, being playful and testing things out.

Previously known as At-Bristol Science Centre, we’re an educational charity that removes boundaries around science - connecting art, people, everything, in a united culture of curiosity. We rely on people, from our skilled staff and volunteers, to the industry specialists we collaborate with and our visitors who inspire us everyday. Our day to day work is all inspired by our Manifesto for a Culture of Curiosity. Download it below to get an idea of what we're about.
