Event details

Creep it real this October half-term with spooky science at Life Science Centre. It’s Halloween fun for all the family.

Highlights include: 

  • Gory: Compare real blood samples from a bird, amphibian and mammal in the Experiment Zone.*

  • Illusion: Make plastic ghosts float and your skin crawl with spooky optical illusions – you won’t believe your eyes!

  • Crafty: Make your own shadow puppet or create a Halloween lantern using LED circuits in the Making Studios. Both makes can be taken home to enjoy!

  • Mystery:  Enjoy some of our top science demonstrations in the Science Theatre and choose your favourites.


Plus - we're revving things up from the second week of half-term (26 October - 3 November):

  • Out of this world: The fantastic new Space Zone launches, where you can bravely explore the deepest darkest parts of the Universe and climb into a mock-up of part of the International Space Station. (But remember, in space no one can hear you scream… Mwahaha!)

  • Gross: Get gooey and make your own slime in these popular workshops. A firm favourite as the kids can make a mess and we’ll clear it up! (26 October - 3 November only)


Please note: the Science Centre will open at the earlier time of 9.00am on weekdays during the second week of half-term (28 October - 1 November).

*The Experiment Zone is for ages 7+ only.

Please note that ticket prices will increase from 26 October. Click here for more information.
