Fun with Chemistry

Tuesday 18th February 2020 - half day workshop for 6-8 year olds. What is chemistry? It’s exciting, fascinating and above all great fun.

Join us and try some seriously fun experiments!

Explore the Moon Twilight

Thursday 20th February 2020 - twilight workshop for 9-11 year olds. The Moon is a very interesting and mysterious object. Come and find out all about it.

On twilight workshops you also get to visit one of our huge telescopes.

Celebration Sundays

It is the 25th anniversary of The Observatory Science Centre in 2020 and we are celebrating throughout the year.
