This season: A Better World is Possible

What could a better world look like? And what do we need to do to get there? 

At a time when science has never been more important, activities and discussions in our spaces this season are all about the prospect of a better tomorrow. 

As part of your visit, you can get involved in real robotics research through a game of robot football, explore the science of sleep, ponder the nature of happiness and investigate whether a machine can understand human emotions.

These activities are free with your general admission ticket and don't need to be booked. Each activity does have a limited capacity to help keep everyone safe, so arrive early to avoid disappointment. 

You can also add a 3D Planetarium show to your visit for an extra £3.50 per person. Find out what's on in the Planetarium here
