Sciences and techniques

I am on the quay, I house one major exhibition a year, I offer entertaining activities, and contribute to spreading scientific knowledge. Who am I?

I am Cap Sciences – an activity and exhibition centre open to the public. I offer a journey to the world of science and industry in Aquitaine. I am glad to welcome both children and adults to help them understand scientific, technical, and industrial influences.
Thanks to Cap Sciences Junior workshops, I enable 8-14 year-olds to put on lab coats and become chemists, engineers, astronomers, electricians, or scientific experts for a day. The Arthur workshop invites smaller children (6-11) to become little chefs, with the appropriate hat and apron. This entails preparing food, learning about hygiene and safety, measuring, etc. in order to transform ingredients into something palatable. Of course, the workshop ends with a tasting!

Reopening on the 4th of July with a big exhibition named "Dogs and cats".


Sustainable approach

Cap Sciences is on the process of obtaining the NF Environment certification and has various commitments listed in its activity report, including a broad accessibility policy, extensive sorting and recycling of waste, and partnerships with the associations Elise and Détritivores.
