We offer Spectacular Science shows with themes linked to specific topics.
Using exciting (and sometimes explosive!) demonstrations, an educational theme is presented to your group in an engaging style with compulsory audience participation!
Current shows include: 'Newton in Motion', 'Materials: What’s the Matter’, ‘Astounding Sound’, 'Destination Space', 'Superheroes of Science', 'Operation Earth’ and ‘Light,Sight & Colour’.
Shows are presented in our geodesic dome which is light and airy with the audience seated at the same level as the show space and demos.
A show costs an additional £1 per pupil, lasts approximately 35 minutes and is a memorable experience of learning opportunities to capture the imagination of your group. Minimum charge £20.
It is with great sadness that we announce the closure of The Observatory Science Centre from 18th March 2020 until further notice.
This decision was made in the light of the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and recent UK government advice, which our charity has been carefully monitoring and following.
The safety and wellbeing of our visitors, staff and volunteers is our absolute priority during this difficult time.
Given the uncertainty we are all facing, we don’t yet know when we will re-open. If you have booked group visits / upcoming events etc. we will be in contact when we return to work.
We sincerely wish good health for you and your families during these uncertain times and we can’t wait to welcome you back as we continue our 25th anniversary celebrations.
