Launchpad open for Key Stage 3 bookings

Students in Launchpad gallery


Launchpad is reserved for particular age groups in particular days. This is to ensure that all children can access the hands-on exhibits at their own pace and it allows them to collaborate with other pupils of a similar age.

Please check the calendar below for dates when the gallery is open for Key Stage 3. The calendar does not reflect real-time availablity so please have alternative dates in mind when you request to visit Launchpad as part of your visit itinerary.

For KS3 dates from September 2015 please check the calendar on this page.

Alongside your Launchpad booking, you can also request places for one of our lively science shows. To find out more about the gallery and the science shows click here.

Please be aware that after 14:30 other age groups can be booked into the gallery so younger and older children may be present too.

This gallery is closing on Monday 2 November 2015 while we develop a super new interactive gallery due to open in late 2016 - see what we have planned for the future.
