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.

Dye Hard Fabrics

Brighten your day with the spectrum of coloured fabrics created using synthetic and naturally occurring dyes.

Colour plays a vitally important role in the world in which we live. They can sway thinking, irritate or soothe your eyes, raise your blood pressure and even suppress your appetite.
​​​​​​​

In this session, investigate how different colours are added to fabrics with both synthetic and naturally occurring dyes. Does changing the pH affect the colour and how will the dye be fixed to the material?


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.
