Life Science Centre

Times Square, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 4EP. Tyne & Wear

At Life, they provide exciting, interactive activities and workshops which are designed to inspire and entertain students of all ages and abilities. A typical school visit includes time in the science centre plus a workshop – or you can opt for a workshop or a science centre visit only.

Their award-winning science centre contains exciting, interactive zones and activities that inject a fun, extra dimension to your visit.

Their unique and engaging programme of workshops and story-telling sessions have been designed to reflect current and relevant STEM themes and topics which are linked to the national curriculum. Workshops take place in fully equipped real labs and The Making Studios, where students can expect exciting experiences that cannot be replicated in the classroom.

Don’t forget, if you are looking for help with funding the cost of your trip, you can apply for a bursary!
