​Science Centres play a pivotal role in advancing Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) education by serving as dynamic hubs for interactive learning and exploration. Science Centres act as catalysts for scientific curiosity, offering hands-on exhibits, interactive demonstrations and immersive experiences that inspire a sense of wonder and discovery. By providing accessible and engaging platforms, Science Centres stimulate interest in STEAM subjects and encourage individuals to pursue further exploration and education in these domains. This presentation will explore the diverse contribution of Science Centres to STEAM education, emphasising their impact on fostering curiosity, promoting interdisciplinary engagement, and cultivating a deeper understanding of the interconnectedness of these fields. As technology continues to reshape the landscape of education, Science Centres ought to adapt by incorporating virtual and digital elements, ensuring their educational impact extends beyond physical boundaries.​​
