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!
