Weekend Activities


Our weekend activities are now finished for the 2016 season apart from the Christmas weekend but we are looking forward to a packed calendar for 2017. Please keep checking the website for further details as they emerge.

British Science Week Activity Weekend
18th and 19th March

To end British Science Week we are adding something extra to the programme. This is all within your admission price.

  • 'Canging World' Science Show
  • Make and take activities and demonstrations including colourful colour spinners, oobleck, changing phases of the Moon, Cartesian diver and more. Come and have fun with change!
  • SUNDAY ONLY: Antweight Robot Wars with Steve McGuinness Test your skills in building and operating a radio controlled robot. Challenge other drivers to a Sumo battle or try your hand at the time trial obstacle course. Learn about radio control systems, traction versus speed, improve your construction skills, and most of all have fun destroying the opposition!  

Bubbletastic weekend

Saturday 29th April - Monday 1st May

Join in the fun during our Bubbletastic Weekend for the Bank Holiday. Create the most spectacular bubbles, find out what it is like to stand in a bubble, try to make the biggest bubble you can and even see if you can make a square bubble - is that really possible? Our bubble wall in the Light and Colour exhibition will also explain what you are looking at and why you see what you see.

No pre-booking required and this activity is FREE as part of your normal admission.
