Are you ready for a hands-on hair-raising experience?

In 2022 we’re celebrating 20 years of wow moments at the Science Centre. Take a trip down memory lane with us and enjoy some of our best show themes and demos from the past 20 years – all with a retro 2002 twist. This summer it's electricity!

Have you ever heard of a Van de Graaf? It's an electrostatic generator. Originally developed as a particle accelerator for physics research, we'll be using one to bring physics to life this summer! Join us in Science Live every day for an interactive hair-raising experience. Are you brave enough to have a go at sparking some static electricity? Don't worry, our Inspirers will be on hand to help you out.
