With more than 250 interactive science exhibits and mind-boggling puzzles, the Cape Town Science Centre is a world of discovery under one roof. It forms part of a wide range of non-classroom initiatives aimed at improving the quality of science understanding and science literacy in South Africa.
In addition to hands-on displays, the CTSC offers science shows, curriculum-based hands-on workshops, holiday programmes, science camps, science theatre, travelling exhibitions, hands-on experiments, excursions and experiential driven programmes.
The centre hosts a Saturday learner enrichment school, as well as robotics workshops and tournaments, chess workshops, Science Out Loud science talks and maths and science exam preparation lessons.
The not-for-profit organisation’s varied programmes also include educator enrichment workshops and educator forums, computer courses, and mini-exhibitions on topical science events.
The CTSC is a member of the Southern African Association of Science and Technology Centres (SAASTEC) and a member of Cape Town Tourism.
Birthday party bookings can also be made for a fun and enriching experience at the centre's Partycle.
An enclosed area for exclusive use is provided and it includes tables and chairs. Bookers have access to the party room for two hours but guests can spend as long as they wish in the Cape Town Science Centre as tickets are valid for the whole day.
