A free science fair has been gaining momentum at Ely Library, wowing visitors with interactive displays about everything from sound waves to sensory processing.

Run by Cambridge Science Centre, the free COSMOS roadshow aims to make science accessible to everyone, staff member Jess Bartlet told Spotted in Ely.

“It’s been very popular. We’ve had people waiting in front of the library in the morning, waiting to come in. It’s very hands on and interactive.”

Popular activities included making optical illusions, exploring how the human body works and tricking the mind. 

Although the roadshow has travelled to The Maltings and Ely Cathedral in the past, this was its debut at Ely Library.

The roadshow will run at the library until tomorrow (Wednesday, April 11).

Cambridge Science Centre opened in 2013 with the aim of making science fun and accessible to young people and their families.
