My Science Fair is a fun, free family day out which is jam-packed with opportunities to learn and play!

Taking place at WMC, and for the first time virtually in 2021, the annual My Science Fair explores the varied and exciting links between music and science through eye-opening demonstrations, hands on workshops and performances aimed at primary school aged science enthusiasts and their families.

A highlight of the day is our My Science Fair Project Competition, last year entered by over 50 participants!  Open to all 5 - 11 year olds, this competition gives children the chance to put their science skills to the test, with the help of our team of professional scientists.
