We’re currently redeveloping our programme for schools and cannot wait to welcome groups back to our science centre soon.

An educational trip to Life would typically include a curriculum-linked workshop plus time to explore the science centre. We’re currently making tweaks to our workshops and can’t wait to share details with you soon!

We're not quite ready to take advanced bookings for school trips just yet, but you can sign up to our mailing list to be the first to hear about our exciting plans. Once we're ready to welcome school groups back to our science centre, we'll be in touch.

Our science centre may be temporarily closed, but teachers can access our exhibitions from the classroom via our virtual visits.
