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."
- Donna Levin, Class Teacher

Two teams compete with each other as they think like scientists and explore the fascinating ways in which animals adapt to their environments in hands-on demonstrations.
We are able to offer one-off science shows for special events subject to availability.
This hands-on maths workshop solves complex problems faced by palaeontologists using simple mathematics. Includes the opportunity to handle real fossils.
Children are often taught the practicalities of electrical circuits but are rarely given an in-depth understanding of electricity as a form of energy.
Our team will turn your hall or gym into a space lab so your students can carry out Galileo’s experiment to measure the rate at which objects fall.
Explore forces in a fun way. Students turn cartons and containers that would otherwise be thrown away into balloon-powered cars.
Students make a rocket from scrap paper, launch it and see how it flies.
Students hear the story of Valentina, the mouse who wanted to be an astronaut.
