Life is an award-winning Science Centre in the heart of
Newcastle-upon-Tyne, which offers a varied programme of exhibitions
across the year, as well as the best planetarium in the North. The
Science Centre also features the hands-on Curiosity Zone, where visitors
can learn to think like real scientists, as well as live demonstrations
in the Science Theatre and the fun-filled 4D Motion Ride!* Life also
runs an ice-rink from late November through to mid-February, which makes
a great end –of-year treat!
Life’s education team work from a purpose-built suite of teaching laboratories where students at every level can take part in exciting, hands-on workshops. Our workshops are directly linked to the STEM national curriculum, so teachers can easily find a workshop to support their current topic of study.
The Science Centre hosts a variety of travelling exhibitions throughout the year. The education team work to develop additional workshops that are relevant to the exhibition, whilst keeping them firmly curriculum-focused. A full list of workshops can be found at www.life.org.uk/education/workshops-and-activities
