Hitch a ride to the stars and beyond at the Life Science Centre. Here your kids can learn loads about the weird world of science and even conduct their own experiments! Sound good?
At Life Science Centre curious explorers of all ages are welcome to get hands-on and have fun with lots of interactive activities on offer. Have a question? Ask one of the friendly Science Explainers - you'll recognise them by the Life-branded blue polo shirts.
You can also journey to the North’s biggest planetarium. It’s a family favourite and quite an education in recognising planets and distant constellations. Education is, in fact, at the heart of everything they do: with scientific experiments, a 4D motion ride and a Young Explorers’ Zone for under 7s, brains will be well and truly supersized!
