What's on

Please note: as there's a lot going on at Maker Faire (26 - 27 April), we won't be offering our usual events programme. There will also be changes to our café menus and the packed lunch area will be closed.

Life Science Centre, Newcastle, is a great day out for the whole family in Newcastle upon Tyne! Find out what's on whatever your age, including things to do for kids and parents, interactive science activities for everyone, and special events for everyone from pre-schoolers to adults!

Young Explorers' Zone

A hands-on area at Life for under 7s. It’s an exciting, stimulating and safe world where children get to take charge, learn new things and have fun.

Curiosity Zone

Are you curious? The Curiosity Zone is a place that gives you the opportunity to think like a scientist, not somewhere that tells you things scientists have already found out.

Life is home to a whole host of exciting exhibitions. They tend to be interactive and hands-on, so don't be afraid to get involved!
