Chuffing Contraptions

daily 14 January 2017 - 31 March 2017
Location: Science Theatre, Life Science Centre, Newcastle upon Tyne
Chuffing Contraptions
Included in Science Centre admission Duration: about 20 minutes Booking not required Ages 5+

We explore engineering and technology from the industrial revolution to the present day.

Engineers fix problems (and often find new ones). Join us as we discover some of the ingenious fixes to tricky problems by making engines and other contraptions to do the work and make things go.

This show has been developed by Life Science Centre and Think Physics.

The Science Theatre is equipped with an analogue induction loop.

During busy times, we request that you visit the planetarium, Science Theatre and Motion Ride once - this is to allow other visitors to enjoy the experience too. Thanks for your consideration.
