Life Science Centre collaboration with BBC children's TV presenters

This week, Life Science Centre in Newcastle, UK, is collaborating with BBC children's TV presenters and YouTube sensations Maddie Moate and Greg Foot.

With more than 100,000 people regularly tuning into Maddie and Greg's YouTube shows, the new collaboration promises to introduce Life's new digital campaign #LifeGoesONline to new audiences.

Like many organisations in lockdown, Life has been creating a host of exciting content that is being shared online. The #LifeGoesONline campaign puts an emphasis on fun and learning with live demos, kitchen science experiments and making activities that can be replicated at home with everyday materials.

The theme for this week's collaboration with Maddie and Greg is 'Mini Makers'. Films and resources will be available on Life's website and social media channels (@ScienceAtLife) after each show.
