Can’t get to us? Let us send a team of Science Explainers to your school!

Life can be at most schools in the region by 10am, and can even stay after-hours to do workshops for parents! The most popular offers include the inflatable planetarium; the Animal Adaptation Roadshow; and Dinomaths, a daylong workshop for one class which uses students’ interest in dinosaurs to promote facility in maths.

For a standard fee of £300 per day we can send two Science Explainers to your school to deliver hour-long sessions to different groups, or to work in greater depth with a specific group.

"We were delighted with the outreach visit from the Centre for Life. We were particularly impressed with the way the staff engaged with all the children; pitching the teaching at the right level and encouraging and answering questions."
