Climate matters

As the North East's biggest science centre, Life is committed to helping audiences make sense of complex, controversial and often scary subjects, like climate science. We also want to inspire and galvanise everyone to consider their role in creating a greener, healthier, and fairer future.

Schools' programme

Our science centre, lab spaces and outdoor ice-rink are now open for schools to visit and enjoy. 

Over the past year, we’ve developed a brand new programme of workshops and story-telling sessions. We promise exciting, relevant, and interactive STEM experiences that cannot be replicated in the classroom. 

Did you know that Life is a charity?

Welcoming about 300,000 visitors a year, our purpose is to help people of all ages, from all communities, explore science and to discover its relevance to their own lives and to inspire the next generation of STEM professionals. This purpose has never been more crucial than it is today. 

COVID-19 has had a massive impact on us. Please support us so that we can continue to make a difference.
