Free nature workshops at Winchester Science Centre

Get set for a nature adventure! At Winchester Science Centre, we’ve teamed up with Butterfly Conservation to offer a brand-new way for schools to experience our amazing outdoor environment. Come and enjoy a free two-hour outdoor lesson in the stunning South Downs National Park before heading to the Science Centre to experience an exciting new environmental workshop.

The Science Centre is just a five minute walk from Butterfly Conservation’s Magdalen Hill Down reserve. Part of the South Downs National Park, Magdalen Hill Down is home to thirty-six different species of butterfly. You’ll spot lots of wildflowers, insects and other wildlife here, many of which cannot be found anywhere else. On your trip, you’ll experience two Butterfly Conservation workshops. Discover more about habitats that can be found in the hedgerows and wildflower meadows or learn about the minibeasts of the South Downs. Then return to the Science Centre for one of the awesome science Inspirer-led workshops.

Activities are perfect for Years R to 6. There is free coach parking at the Science Centre and your school will have a dedicated lunch space.
