Did you know that Life is a charity?

Whether you are buying a Science Centre ticket, having a party at Life, hiring one of our rooms for a conference or getting married in the planetarium, you are making a difference. Your contribution supports some of the brilliant work being done on site. For instance, did you know that thousands of babies have been born with help from the Newcastle NHS Fertility Centre based at Life? 

Thanks to your generous support, we are able to engage with all of our visitors to help them find out more about science and the part it plays in their lives. And, of course, to have a great time doing it!

Our mission is to:

  • Ignite and nurture a curiosity in everyone for science, technology, engineering and maths and encourage the next generation of STEM professionals.
  • Support world-class science in the region and make a positive economic, social and cultural contribution to North East England and its communities.


​Registered charity number 1059607.


“It’s great to be back in my native city of Newcastle. Life Science Centre is a jewel in the region’s crown – a place that fosters creativity, increases scientific literacy and inspires future scientists.”

– Nobel Prize laureate Professor Peter Higgs
