Be Amazed by Science during May Half Term

Visit Jodrell Bank this half term and prepare to be Amazed by Science as we take part in the annual Cheshire-wide festival with another packed programme of tours, shows and interactive activities.

This half term, we’ll be launching our brand new Rocket Lab, a hands-on and interactive activity zone exploring the science of rockets. Our Under 7s sessions are back too and ready to take you on a mission to the moon, perfect to inspire a whole new generation of astronauts! And don’t miss our explosive live science show, fun-filled and fact-packed, including interactive demonstrations and live experiments, its perfect for all the family!

Our friends at Siemens will be joining us again too, testing your science and engineering skills with their fun and interactive games, as well as hosting their amazing Gadget Factory Workshops. And if you’re interested in earth science and the natural world, we’ve got that covered as well! The Cheshire Beekeepers will be here to teach you about the honeybee in a live demonstration in Jodrell Bank’s very own buzzing beehives… Come along and bee happy!
