Cornwall Science Museum
Discover the peculiarities of science with interactive art installations crafted from waste materials.
Discovering42 is about using art as a catalyst for engaging adults and children with science and environmental issues. Our society needs critical thinkers if we are going to solve our climate
crisis and we feel it all starts with making science relivant and
approachable, creating a space to experiment and inspiring people to
feel they can contribute. There is no dedicated science museum in Cornwall and a lack of child-friendly art venues. Informal learning spaces are a key way of connecting us with subjects that may seem boring or difficult on paper. Reimagining Reality is a pilot for a community-led arts, science and sustainability hub in Cornwall.
If you would like to help us make Discovering42 a permanent feature in Cornwall, you can donate here.
Discovering42 is about empowering us all to come together and share ideas. We want people to feel like they can be an active part of visualising and creating solutions. We believe that we don’t need to have all the answers, we just need to want to make a difference and start somewhere. We want to create a culture that feels comfortable to experiemnt, make mistakes, learn and adapt as we go.
If you want to be part of the action, get in touch. There is so much to do and we would love you to be part of the team. You can be involved as little or as much as you like.
