Create a windmill or wind-powered moving toy to take home – harnessing the power of nature!


In the Making Studios, a range of interactive exhibits from selfie booths* to poetry robots will help you tap into your inner creativity, while the studio spaces provide an opportunity to try your hand at a variety of hands-on making activities – covering everything from sewing and soldering, to cardboard construction and coding.   


Please note: Photographs taken on the Selfie Booth are not stored on the device or by Life Science Centre, and the device is not connected to the internet.

The Making Studios has been made possible through the support of the Inspiring Science Fund – a partnership between UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and Wellcome.

Additional support has been provided by The Garfield Weston Foundation and the Catherine Cookson Charitable Trust.
