Awesome science stuff
The Science Shop is awesome. You'll find everything from pocket-money souvenirs to amazing experiments that you can do in your kitchen. It's best to explore everything in the shop early on so you can avoid the rush at the end of the day. When you've finished your visit, you can continue your STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) journey when you get home.
Are you a future astronaut? A paleontologist? An entomologist or a biologist perhaps? You'll be wowed by the wall that's covered with fact-filled books. Discover encyclopaedias with fantastic pictures and first reading books. Explore study guides and interesting books for older children.
And there's loads more! Get creative with puzzles, posters, models and STEM-themed construction kits. There's even astronaut ice cream – yippee!
