Join our ten year celebration

On 1 November, the National Science Learning Centre will be celebrating ten years since the first course took place. To celebrate this, we are hosting an open day between 12:30-17:00, and you’re invited! 

To coincide with the upcoming Bonfire Night on 5 November, we investigate the chemistry of fireworks with help from Matthew Tosh – a professional pyrotechnician. Matthew will be doing demonstration talks for an hour at 13:00 and 15:00, which promises to be well worth attending. 

Along with this, many other firework related activities will be taking place throughout the day and light refreshments will be provided. 

Tickets are completely free and are available now! Book a place in one of the lectures here.
