Embark on a journey to explore the building blocks of life, including a larger-than-life DNA helix (25 metres length by 2 metres high), giant neuron and towering atom sculpture.

Let your children learn more about those captivating themes while having fun by visiting Cambridge Science Centre’s Pop-Up on the First Floor (free entry for all and weekly themes until 25 August). They can also get creative at the science drawing station, located on the Ground Floor of John Lewis & Partners.

Julie Kervadec, marketing manager at the Grand Arcade said: “The Grand Discoveries exhibition and city trail map highlight just a selection of the brilliant minds and their discoveries during their time in Cambridge.

“Thank you to our science and technology partners – BIOS Health, Cambridge Applied Research, Cambridge University Libraries, Cambridge Science Centre, and Raspberry Pi – which have been instrumental in providing scientific content to explain and develop our giant sculptures.

“There is something for everyone – from young aspiring scientists to curious minds of all ages!

“We look forward to welcoming everyone to be inspired by the past, present and future of scientific exploration.”

Brian O Halloran, Brand Manager at Raspberry Pi, said: “The best things come in small packages, as the cliché goes, and that’s certainly true when it comes to Raspberry Pi.

“Our outsize scale model Raspberry Pi 4 helps you get a good look at a tiny computer that has had a giant impact. We created it especially for the Grand Discoveries exhibition taking place at the Grand Arcade, the location of our flagship store.”

Laura Greenfield, Director of External Engagement, Cambridge University Library, said: “Cambridge University Library is proud to be home to the archives of some of the world’s greatest scientists, including Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, and Stephen Hawking.

“The scientific discoveries which happened across Cambridge have changed the world, and these breakthroughs are captured forever in the handwritten papers and, more recently, computerised files we store at the University Library. We are delighted they are being celebrated at Grand Arcade this summer.’’
