The workshops:


Get set for a fun and engaging chemistry workshop. What are conductors and insulators? Let’s find out! Students will discover how different materials keep in heat. They’ll need to work scientifically to plan a fair test and experiment with different materials.


Can we use coding to help humans reduce the impact we have on Earth? In this computing workshop, we’ll find out. Students will use microbit coding to create their own sounds and lights. Let’s work together to develop our STEM skills for a better future.


Our fish are being mysteriously killed! It's the job of budding biologists to find the cause and come up with a solution. Find out about the effects of pollution on our oceans and play a game to discover how plastic is damaging them. Explore the fragile habitats and food chains of our waterways. What damage are plastics doing to aquatic life?

Add some science wow to your school assembly!

Sit back and get ready for some wow moments! Our Inspirer will take your students on a journey of discovery about the state of our planet. There’ll be awe-inspiring demos such as the epic whoosh bottle and explosive hydrogen balloon. Future scientists will be left with a lasting memory of how to work scientifically. And the next generation of planet protectors will be inspired to make a difference.

We don’t always have the equipment or time to give students this experience. There was such a wide variety of resources. It was so good to have the Science Centre in as we can’t do all these things.
