Things to do at Technopop

There will be family shows from the Science Museum, a Saturday coding club and workshops galore, on a dizzying array of subjects from cutting edge 3D digital technologies to designing your own community play space.

You can get up close to a real space suit, build your own computer and hear tales of rocket launches from NASA and new business launches from amazing young entrepreneur, George Burgess, who co-founded his first company at the tender age of 15.  Not to mention inspiration from top science bods, including CBBC science presenter, Fran Scott and dynamic organisations such as Sciencegrrl, set up to celebrate and support women in science.

There will be a different theme at Technopop each week:
