W5 is undergoing a £4.5m investment programme from 2018 to 2020, with the aim of redeveloping W5 into a truly world class, innovative and immersive science and discovery centre. Our aim is to strengthen our links to industry and to help you understand how science affects you and your everyday life.
£3 million of funding has been awarded through the Inspiring Science Fund, a partnership between the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and Wellcome, with a further £1.5 million invested from The Odyssey Trust. In line with the Government’s Industrial Strategy to encourage more young people to consider Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) careers, the investment will enable W5 to reinvigorate their visitor experience.
