Join us this summer for Operation Earth!

Join us at Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre this summer as we celebrate the wonder of our home planet and dive into the exciting world of environmental science.

We’ve teamed up with the Association of Science and Discovery Centres (ASDC) and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) to bring you a host of hands-on and interactive events and activities as part of a nation-wide engagement project called Operation Earth

From 28th July – 2nd September, visitors to Jodrell Bank will be able to take part in a range of activities, science shows, Q&A sessions, hands-on crafts, and guided tours. You can even make your own planet pledge to add to our wall.

Highlights include Operation Earth Activities. -Taking place every day throughout the school holidays, drop-in and learn more about the current issues facing our planet and what you can do to help.

You won’t want to miss our Operation Earth Science Show either, full of live experiments and interactive demonstrations, join us as we investigate Earthy’s land, air and oceans to see how we can work together to help.

Our popular Meet the Expert sessions are back too, this time with a weekly environmental scientist from The University of Manchester to answer all your questions.

And, every Thursday will see a special Garden Make and Take where you can make your own environmentally-friendly plant pot to take home with a new wildflower friend!

There’s plenty to explore at Jodrell Bank this summer and all events and activities are FREE with general admission.
