Life goes on-line!

A perfect introduction to science for toddlers and young explorers, our Outdoor Explorer walks help little ones understand the world around them and spot patterns that we see every day. Can you work out what the theme is for each walk before the end of the video?

Check us out on FacebookTwitter or Instagram to see our team demonstrating more fun and educational activities you can try at home. Share your own videos and photos with us using #LifeGoesONline.

All online content is FREE, but Life is a charity and so this is a challenging time for us. Please consider supporting Life and help us to continue to inspire everyone in North East England to explore and enjoy science. Donate here.
