Children can have fun discovering science with our hands-on experiences. The famous Launchpad gallery is full of interactive exhibits and activities, and daily science shows let kids see explosions and volunteer in experiments.


Pattern Pod is a hands-on gallery that was created especially for children from 5–8 years of age and their parents. 



Explainer with bubbles

This interactive show features bubbles of all sizes going up, down, this way, that way, and all over the place… with a little help from the audience! This show is a popular family favourite and spaces are limited so please arrive early to avoid disappointment.
