Space Adventures with Lightyear at Life Science Centre
Celebrate the new Lightyear film in style at Newcastle’s Life Science Centre. Explore the science behind one of our favourite astronauts and enjoy

a range of NEW space-themed activities* that are out-of-this-world...



**Moon buggy building in the Making Studios**

get hands-on building your own moon buggy. Before you take it home, take it for a test drive on our mock-up of the moon’s bumpy surface.



**Space Zone adventures**

be the boss in Mission Control and check out how astronauts poo in space. Walk inside our

replica of part of the International

Space Station and enjoy stunning shows in the north’s

biggest planetarium! All highlights of Space Zone.



**Live science show:**

3...2...1... Blast Off! - Join our Explainers as they journey through space - can you help them return the spaceship safely back to Earth?



**Rocket science in Experiment Zone**

launch your own rocket by mixing real chemicals together. Investigate materials to discover which would work best for an astronaut’s visor. (Ages 7+)



**Gaia, our planet Earth**

be amazed by the 7-metre wide, glowing replica of our shared home, created by British artist Luke Jerram. On the upper level of the science centre, grab an easel and create your own Earth-inspired artwork.



Plus under-7s fun including Play Zone, discovery backpacks and three pop-up play stations.



Continue your space adventure over the summer, as we launch more exciting activities!



*Please note this is not a new exhibition but a series of activities.
