Welcome to Science Spy School! We’re on the hunt for new recruits to join us as our Inspirers delve into the science of light. Help us solve the clues and shed some light on what’s contained within the mystery safe in this brand new live science show.

Did you know that science is vital in solving some of our planet’s greatest mysteries? It’s helped to cure illnesses and taken us beyond our own planet. But can we use the science of light to help find the clues we need to unlock our mystery safe? And what will be hidden inside? Let’s find out together!

Through enlightening experiments and dazzling demos, we’ll illuminate the hidden clues. How can light change our perception of colour? What will ultraviolet light reveal about our mystery? And watch in awe as the mind, and light, bending epic lasers steal the show and teach us all about refraction. Will you help us solve the mystery and unlock the safe? Join our Science Spy School now!

The Science Theatre is accessible so everyone can enjoy all the fun. Sometimes there will be loud noises, but we'll tell you about them before the show starts. If you want to wear ear defenders, you can borrow them from us before the show starts. If you feel nervous in a show, you can stay near the back and leave quickly if you need to.

Sensitive to loud noises? There's a not-so-noisy show just for you at 3.30pm.
