Life Science Centre is now open on weekends only between 10:00am - 5:00pm. Tickets for timed slots can be purchased online in advance of your visit. Some slots on the afternoon will be kept free for walk-ups - but booking is advised to avoid disappointment.
Our safety measures remain in place. This includes the Life team and visitors being asked to wear a face covering unless exempt.
We have a creative side. Scientists, engineers and inventors use their imagination, tools and materials to solve life's big problems. Now it’s your turn to get creative and see what you can create and solve.
Get hands-on in the Creativity Zone, with a range of interactive exhibits. Solve challenges, make objects move on our spinning table and marvel at inspirational creations featured on our LEGO® wall. Don’t forget to capture the fun and share your self-portrait at the selfie booth!
Head to the Making Studios to try your hand at a variety of hands-on making activities. Over the summer, you can create a windmill or wind-powered moving toy to take home – harnessing the power of nature!
Please note: Photographs taken on the Selfie Booth are not stored on the device or by Life Science Centre, and the device is not connected to the internet.
The Making Studios has been made possible through the support of the Inspiring Science Fund – a partnership between UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and Wellcome.
Additional support has been provided by The Garfield Weston Foundation and the Catherine Cookson Charitable Trust.
