Event details

Science to amuse and amaze you in your very own kitchen.


We often see science done in big laboratories, but there are plenty of weird and wonderful things you can do at home. Join our science explainers as they try some of them. What will you do in your kitchen?
 

Want to try some science at home?

Download our handy toolkit for making the perfect slime with items found in your kitchen cupboards!

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 visitors to enjoy the experience too. Thanks for your consideration.
