Families challenged to take-on Robots Activity Trail this summer

Families are invited to explore an activity trail through Life Science Centre’s blockbuster exhibition Robots – then and now this summer holidays as part of an action-packed day at the visitor attraction.

Packed full of quizzes, games and activities, the Robots Activity Trail helps younger visitors to get as much out of Life’s new exhibition as their parents, as they explore 500 years of robotic discovery.

Also included in the admission ticket is the new live show in the Science Theatre, Great Geordie Bridges, and the chance for children to craft their own souvenir in the Making Space, with a new activity every week throughout the holidays.

Other highlights include the biggest planetarium in the North of England and the 4D Motion Ride*, where the on-screen action comes to life with seats that move and special effects, such as wind and smoke.

Julia Hankin, Director of Marketing and Communications at Life, said: “With so much to see and do, families can enjoy a full day out and still find more to explore on their next visit. Our changing programme means visitors can come again and again.”

To celebrate the arrival of the school holidays, Life Science Centre has introduced a 20% discount on all day tickets purchased online by 16 July 2018 for visits during the summer holidays**.

Robots – then and now, developed by the Science Museum in London, is at Life Science Centre until 2 December 2018.

*Please note, you must be at least 1.2 metres in height to use the 4D Motion Ride.
