The Cape Town Science Centre has put together a list of ‘wishes’ that will enable us to achieve our mission. This is a dynamic list giving an overview of the CTSC’s current wishes – please contact the Director, Julie Cleverdon, at julie@ctsc.org.za for more details should you be interested in fulfilling a wish.


mars barometer R7,5kDid you know that the Cape Town Science Centre has a scale model of the Mars Rover Curiosity?

If you didn’t know, it’s probably because we’re keeping it safe until we can build a Martian landscape where it can roam around while YOU’RE driving it! This playpen we have in mind has so much more than just valleys and dust – we’ve dreamed up a very exciting interactive experience where you can learn more about the mysterious Red Planet.

Now building such an exciting exhibit isn’t cheap, and we need every little bit of help we can get. Your donation might just tip the scales in our favour. Please consider contributing to this project today.
