The STEM Discovery Centre is a unique education facility, developed in partnership with
North Hertfordshire College, Airbus and the Hertfordshire LEP, to celebrate STEM and inspire young people to consider a career in science, technology, engineering and maths.

We offer school trips that spark the imagination, electrifying the senses and galvanise young people to consider a career in science, technology, engineering and maths.

Book now to visit our education centre where you can explore and learn for yourself; complemented by a programme of compelling presenter-led activities.

Our education programme is linked to key stage 2 and 3 curriculum and is designed and delivered by North Hertfordshire College.


Discovery Zones

Creative Zone

Our creative zone is a state-of-the-art classroom for presenter led hands-on activities activities and science shows.

Exploration Zone

Where visitors can get hands-on with our exhibits, we absolutely insist that you can touch and have a go at all you see. This area includes interactive exhibits covering the themes of Space, Energy (including Light and Sound), Materials, Forces and Magnetism.

Inspiration Zone

Where visitors can see how the STEM subjects link to careers and the world around us. This area also provides viewing access to the Mars Yards test area, where visitors can actually see the prototype rovers that Airbus engineers are testing as part of the ExoMars project.

Together, we can inspire the next generation

Please support the STEM Discovery Centre so we can continue to provide opportunities for the next generation of scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians.

We’ve created a donations page for one-off contributions to support our work.
