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.

A Mechanical Dance

Engineer the components to design a hidden mechanism for a machine!

From ancient Greece to the modern day, we have been fascinated by machines that replicate the actions of humans and animals.

In this session, explore the science behind moving mechanisms, such as pulleys, levers, drives and gears, and then use your knowledge to assemble them into contraptions of your design!


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.
