The discovery zone is an activity area for kids to experience science first-hand with equipment that allows you to fire a vortex of air, send secret whisper messages across the room, colour your shadow and much more. All the activities are hands-on and they encourage you to explore science by playing. The discovery zone is suitable for children aged between 5-12 years old, but the whole family is always welcome. Get more out of the discovery zone by combining your trip with a show or workshop for only £5 per person. Upcoming shows are listed online.
