WORKSHOPS AND CLUBS
During term-time, our drop-in STEM club is on the 1st & 3rd Saturday of every month (10am-4pm) and the following Friday afternoon (2pm-5pm). See what we have done before and find out what is coming up next. Each standalone workshop is included in admission price. There is no specific age range but we ask you to stay with your child. You may enjoy taking part in the activities as a family, especially if your child is under 9.
Our robot club is when we have our programable Lego and robots out for you to explore. This is on the term-time Friday afternoons that do not have a drop-in STEM club (2pm-5pm).
An annual family pass (£20) is a great gift that entitles up to five people to unlimited visits to the science centre for 12 months. Additionally, we now stock a small selection of gifts and toys ranging from £1-£15. Proceeds from these sales will be used to cover the core costs of our not-for-profit social enterprise.
