Prices and booking

A typical school visit includes time in the science centre plus a workshop – or you can opt for a workshop or a science centre visit only.  

We’ll provide you with an itinerary when you arrive which is tailored to the learner level and focus of your group, and will also include your lunch break, so you don’t miss a thing! Life can provide lunch packages for your group, or you can bring packed lunches. Storage for belongings and any packed lunches will be provided on arrival, and there will be space for you to eat your lunch too. Our team can answer your science questions and help with activities on the day.

Please note: we cannot guarantee that you will be able to visit all areas on your visit. Please tell us if there are any particular areas you want to be included at the time of booking.
