Event details

Are you aged between 13 and 18? Want to explore what you can really do with science? Life’s hands-on sessions for teenagers include a ‘no boring stuff’ guarantee!


Whether you take part alone or with friends, you’re guaranteed to meet like-minded people, learn something new and have fun.

Colours Alive

Delve into your creative side to compose an artwork of living colour, with help from a palette of different bacteria!

A rather unique opportunity to experience where science becomes art and art becomes science. Using techniques from microbiology and a colourful palette of living microbes you will create a very unusual piece of artwork. It may even glow in the dark.

Investigate how much truth may be in some of the digestive health benefits claimed by producers of yoghurt. You are welcome to bring your own yoghurt sample and use the microscopes to have a closer encounter with the microbes in your food.

Tickets are available to book online. Booking will close at midnight on the Wednesday before each session.
On the day, please head to the main Science Centre reception with your ticket and a member of staff will take you to the lab.​

If something comes up and you can’t make it please let us know so that we don’t delay the start of the session waiting for you! You can email us at sciencesessions@life.org.uk or call on 0191 243 8223 up until the Friday before, or call or text Noel on 07786332465 on the weekend.
