Top Science Days out!
During the Wild! Science takeover, we've been looking at the fun ways children can learn science at home with Wild! Science kits. The range includes a cool variety of kits which teach children everything from chemical equations to the refraction of light!
As well as introducing science to kids at home, why not take things one step further and take your children on a day trip for more scientific inspiration? Here are our favourite science places to visit:
The National Children’s Museum in Halifax is an interactive, educational museum for children, which focuses on learning through play. Children from babies to 11 year olds are inspired to learn all about themselves and the world around them by playing, imagining, experimenting and – above all – having fun, with the caring grown-ups in their lives.
The Winchester Science Centre, the South of England's hands-on, interactive, science and technology centre, is also home to the largest standalone planetarium cinema in the UK! It is a unique, exciting interactive centre, set up to promote the knowledge and understanding of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
Explore the world-changing science of The Royal Institution since 1799 in the Faraday Museum. Discover all about the instruments and people that have made science work for the last two hundred years. From the odds and ends that became the first electrical transformer to the tube that told us why the sky is blue, you can see the actual objects scientists built and used in some of the world's most famous experiments. You can also find out about the 14 Nobel Prize winners who have worked at the Institution, also known as the Ri.
Striving to be the best place in the world for people to enjoy science, the Science Museum's world-class collection is a lasting record of scientific, technological and medical achievements from around the world.
The Museum of Science and Industry is dedicated to inspiring visitors through ideas that change the world, from the Industrial Revolution to today and beyond. And what better place? The museum is on the site of the oldest surviving passenger railway station, in the heart of the world’s first industrial city. With daily demonstrations of spinning and weaving on original machines to working steam mill engines in action, there is plenty for visitors to see.
