STEM Superheroes

This British Science Week (9 - 18 March), we're inviting children to dress up and enjoy the Science Centre in their favourite superhero outfits. Adults are welcome to join in the fun too, but remember, your biggest super power is getting your little ones into science, technology, engineering and maths!. Free face-painting will be available to enhance costumes.
