Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium is a self-funded, independent educational charity dedicated to building science capital for all. Boasting two floors of hands-on interactive exhibits, the UK’s largest standalone planetarium and a wide-ranging events programme, the Science Centre is an important regional hub for informal science learning and a popular visitor attraction for families, schools and the general public.
The charity extends its reach through its trademark organisation STEM NOW and through successful partnerships with universities and industry. STEM NOW runs the South Central STEM Ambassador Hub on behalf of STEM Learning UK, coordinating more than 4,000 volunteers across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire.
