Atom Club have teamed up with our friends at Marnhull Baby & Toddlers to put on a children’s tent at Marnhull Fest 2018 this weekend! The weather is looking like it’s going to be amazing, so we’ve managed to get access to electric to run some fans in the attempt to keep the marquee as […]

Wow! This month has flown! Newton still has some frustrating moments, but he is like a completely different bird to when we collected him. He’s now very happy to come out of his cage and explore the house and the centre. He comes in most days and will fly in between his perches, cage and […]

The day has finally come for Newton to make his first visit to the centre. We brought him in at the weekend and were expecting visitors, so it’d be a good chance for him to explore, but to also get used to there being people around. I’m pleased to say that it went even better […]

A year ago we were just a few votes from going through to the finals and pitching to Sir Richard Branson and we had nothing but a dream. Now we have an already amazing centre and are so close to having all exhibits open. Help us take it all the way to Richard this year! Our […]

We’re so pleased to announce the Dorset Robot Championships. Inspired by our favourite tv show – Robot Wars, we’re bringing robot building to Dorset schools. For a small investment, schools get a talk from a roboteer and can battle their robot again other schools in our custom arena. The 2-day event also allows people of […]
