Go on a creative journey throughout Scitech these school holidays to discover the technology and techniques behind making and believing ideas.
Our app or passport will guide you through different activity stations where families will think, create and share ideas together. Pre-book your tickets and save time on arrival.
Immerse yourself in our sound effects station, where visitors will choose, create and play the soundscape to a short film. Using a multitude of different instruments or everyday objects, visitors contribute to creating a large-scale temporary animation together.
Somewhere Your City
Can you hack our digital program? Choose a template, decorate it and scan it in to see it come alive with other visitor’s creations as part of a large city-themed animation. Then, receive bonus points and see if you can hack our program to manipulate the animated image.
Practise your story telling skills and create a stop or slow motion video or 3D mini me image. Experiment and refine your creation, then email it to yourself to share with friends and family.
Trick Your Mind

Chevron Science Theatre
From cars and popcorn to rockets and volcanoes, explore, estimate and predict your world through booms, blasts and bangs in the 'Maths + Explosions' show!
Discover the history of aviation in 'Dream to Fly'. Trace the evolution of flight from thousands of years ago when flying was something only achievable in dreams and stories, to kites, balloons and modern aviation technology.
In the 'Voyage of Discovery' show explore how we have used the night sky to make pictures, tell stories and communicate cultures for centuries, then lift off from Earth to travel further into the universe than any current spacecraft. What could we discover here in the future?
