Life Science Centre is home to the North’s biggest and best planetarium.

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.

The Young Explorers' Zone will close at 4.00pm on Friday 9 and Saturday 10 December....

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.
