Saturday Science Club at The Invention Rooms

We’re excited to bring you a new series of science events at our free Saturday Science Club this autumn. Join us at The Invention Rooms for family-friendly workshops to explore aliens, chemical reactions and more in these fun hands-on sessions made specially for local families with our researchers.

The Saturday Science Club is aimed at 5 – 11-year olds and is a mix of fun and interactive activities aimed at inspiring your children and supporting further learning outside of school. At each session you’ll be given extra activities to pick up and do at home until you come back.
