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.

Thermoelectric Power

Can you turn waste heat into a power source for your mobile phone?

A lot of energy is lost as heat in many domestic and industrial processes. What if there was a way to harness that energy to generate electricity? Could this be the power source for future spacecraft?
​​​​​​​

Explore how something called the Peltier chip could utilise this wasted power as you put one at the heart of a thermoelectric generator. Will it be able to work as an effective mobile phone charger?

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.
