Science Alive - Colleen Farrelly

Science Alive! is a not-for-profit trust, dedicated to educating the public about science and technology within the Canterbury region, through interactive experience.

Science Alive! was established in 1991, as a science and technology learning and entertainment centre. In 1993, we completed the purchase of the iconic Railway Station building on Moorhouse Avenue.

On 22 February 2011, following a series of earthquakes, the building was evacuated. After the most damaging earthquake in Christchurch’s history, it was later assessed as uninhabitable. 

Science Alive is now planning a new  science centre in central Christchurch to continue to ignite a passion for science in both adults and children.
