The UK Association for Science and Discovery Centres (ASDC) brings together over 70 major science engagement organisations in the UK. Together we strive for a society where people of all ages and backgrounds have an open 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.

  • Science festivals
  • Learned societies

Together our members make up the UK’s largest publically accessible network dedicated to both informal science learning and family science engagement, employing thousands of dedicated professionals.
