Combine your workshop with a science centre visit

No school trip would be complete without a visit to our science centre

We provide exciting, interactive zones and activities which are designed to inspire and entertain students of all ages and abilities.

We’re not like a museum where you’ll find stuff in cases and be expected to look and not touch. At Life, students will be encouraged to get stuck in: explore, create, have fun. Our friendly Explainers are always around to answer questions, explain activities and suggest new things to try.
