Ignite your imagination in SparkLab, an interactive science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) space, ideal for 6 to 13 year olds!

Follow your curiosity and bring out your inner scientist as you question, investigate and wonder about the world around you.

See live experiments at the Science Bar and get hands on at the Maker Space, designing and creating a solution to a challenging question.
