About the event
Welcome to our new PopUpScience Centre.
We are open for families and young people each Saturday and Sunday from 10.00am to 3.30pm. Drop in and join us at any time - entry is FREE.
We will be discovering different scientific concepts through our shows and activities each day in a fun and interactive way. There will be plenty of time to explore our hands-on exhibits too, and our Science Communicators will be on hand to answer any questions you have.
Have a go at our take-home activity
11am Fabulous Fungi
Bold and vibrant fungi are found in nearly every garden, but what we witness above ground are just the beautiful fruiting buds. However, what about their hidden underground network of hyphae? Find out how fungi are responsible for playing a huge part in our ecosystems, and are one of the unsung heroes of the natural world.

2pm Same but different
Take the chance to be a part of a 5 billion year old story and discover why we all look a bit the same - but different! Learn about Charles Darwin’s famous voyage on The Beagle and how that helped him formulate his theory of evolution. Help us identify the similarities and differences between species, and find out how species adapt to different environments - including the very weird way marine iguanas cope with swallowing saltwater!
Children must be accompanied by a parent or carer at all times. Most suitable for children aged 7-11 years. Younger siblings will be able to join in with some adult support.
