Pre-School Days

Pre-School Days
Starting Friday 16 September, Newcastle’s Life Science Centre will run monthly pre-school days – the perfect opportunity for you and your little ones to try new things, make new friends and have lots of hands-on fun.



Explore the science centre in a baby-and-toddler-friendly environment and enjoy exciting activities that have been developed with children’s physical, cognitive and social skills in mind.



Regular highlights include hands-on play in the Making Studios, a balancing path for adventurous walkers, and an immersive, child-friendly planetarium experience.



Each session is different, so there’ll be new things to try each time you visit – from storytellers and crafters to artists and musicians.



**Friday 16 September:**

Storytime with Star Bright Arts

– Enjoy nature-themed stories, songs and sensory play. Make your own seed ball to take home.



Wind tubes in the Making Studios - Create a contraption to let loose in our wind tubes. There’ll be a range of materials to choose from. How high will your creation fly?



Wonderful water play – Discover the world of water. From scooping and pouring, floating and sinking, squeezing and wringing – play with a range of toys and explore what water can do.



Clay leaf printing – Get hands-on creating clay leaf prints using a range of real leaves. Notice the beautiful patterns they can make and take your creation home.



**Tuesday 13 October:**



Build a 3D scrap sculpture in the Making Studios – Use materials you might find in the recycling bin and build a 3D scrap sculpture. Put your problem-solving skills to the test as you explore how different parts fit together.



Creepy crawlies treasure hunt – Search through dried leaves and branches to find hidden plastic creatures. Can you name and describe the creatures you find?



Make a magnetic tin can robot – build your own tin can robot using a range of magnetic materials. What special features will you give your robot? Are some materials more magnetic than others?



**Friday 18 November:**



Magical light play in the Making Studios - Experiment with creations that capture and project light. How many different shapes and shadows can you make?



Painting with bubbles – Create colourful shapes by blowing bubbles into a mixture of paint and soapy water.



Tape maze challenge – Our toys are lost in the science centre! Can you help them get home by guiding them through a tricky maze made from tape? Be careful to stay on the lines!



Music time with Piccolo Music – Sing and dance with your little ones and enjoy learning new tunes, and joining in with old favourites!



Everything is included in the price of your science centre ticket. Some activities are first-come, first served and will require sign-up at reception. There may be occasional changes to programming

- see website for details.





We recommend allocating about 2-3 hours for your visit and pre-booking a timed slot online is recommended. This applies to members, children aged 4 and under and carers. Members must bring

their membership card with them when they visit.
