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

 

The kind of topics we cover include:
 

- coding robots for a mission to Mars.
- making a bang with particles and pressure.
- developing DNA fingerprints to find out ‘who dunnit’.
- exploring quantum mechanics.

 
Participants also have the opportunity to plan what we do in future sessions.
 
Whether you take part alone or with friends, you’re guaranteed to meet like-minded people, learn something new and have fun.

Science Sessions run on Sundays, roughly every six weeks, and places must be booked in advance online.
Booking will close at midnight on the Wednesday before each session.

Each session costs £7.50 per person and lasts two hours. They don’t start until 2.30pm, so there’s still time for a lie-in and Sunday Lunch!
