The UK Association for
Science and Discovery Centres (ASDC) brings together over 60 major science
engagement organisations in the UK.
Together we strive for a
society where people of all ages and backgrounds have an opportunity to enjoy
and explore science, and feel a sense of shared ownership over its direction.
Each year our members
engage over 20 million people with the wonders of science.
Our membership includes:
UK Science and Discovery Centres
National, regional and local museums
Environmental centres and organisations
Learned societies and research councils
Organisations and departments with a national STEM remit.
Together our members
make up the UK’s largest publicly accessible network dedicated to both informal
science learning and family science engagement. Collectively they employ
thousands of dedicated science engagement professionals.
We warmly welcome to our
membership, all organisations who share our vision of a society where people
are intrigued, inspired and involved with the sciences.
