Amazed by Science

Amazed by Science is a Cheshire-wide science festival, created to engage children aged 6-11 years old, taking place annually during May half-term.

We are currently working on our 5th year, to take place 26th May - 3rd June 2018 and are aiming to grow the festival with new science performers, collaborating with more organisations in the industry and attracting more visitors.

The festival will continue to target parents and children with fun and educational STEM activities, encouraging children, and adults alike, to get involved in science and bust the myth that science is boring.

Activities take place at 'hub' areas (Chester, Ellesmere Port, Crewe and Warrington) and also at many attractions across Cheshire. If you are an attraction who would be interested in running a science activity during the festival, please email for more information or visit
