The Cambridge Science Centre is a much-anticipated, public interactive science centre - the first of its kind in the city. The educational charity, founded by Chris Lennard and Katia Smith-Litière, provides a hands-on opportunity for children and adults to learn and get excited about science. The charity appointed Onespacemedia to plan, design and build a new website and online administration system to promote the centre, its attractions and the organisation behind it.
The Centre for Science & Policy approached us to replace their legacy CRM system and embark on an ambitious website project that would allow them to deliver their vision of better connecting members of the scientific community.
We had a series of meetings with CSaP stakeholders to better understand their vision before developing a technical specification that would form the foundation of the project.
Rapid systems design
We built a prototype of the CRM system using the Django framework which allowed us to rapidly demonstrate functionality and user interface components. We worked closely with CSaP during this process, getting sign-off for features as we built them. This process was further streamlined by our web-based project management system.
We leveraged the all-new University of Cambridge website design guidelines and templates to build out the front-end of the website whilst simultaneously road-testing the kit on a real project. The results were outstanding.
Handover and training
We held workshops time with CSaP staff to ensure that they were properly trained before handing over the running of the site.
We continue to work with CSaP to build new functionality as their business needs evolve.

Onespacemedia took a complex brief and provided elegant solutions. They were great to work with and we are delighted with the results. Chris Tyler, Executive Director
