Join the Science Spy School live show and help use light to uncover the secrets contained in the mystery safe. Put your forensic skills to the test in an indoor and outdoor Hide and Seek activity trail.

There’ll be space adventures in the Planetarium, huge ‘don’t try this at home demos in Science Live and two floors of hands-on exhibits to explore! There’s a mystery to uncover in the Science Theatre!

Join the Science Spy School and help shed some light on what’s hidden inside the mystery safe. In this brand-new live science show the science Inspirers will be delving into the science of light. Through enlightening experiments and dazzling demos, find out what hidden clues will be illuminated. What will ultraviolet light reveal about the mystery? And will the mind, and light, bending epic lasers steal the show and reveal more about refraction? Let’s find out together.

There are more mysteries, and a fair bit of mayhem, happening in the rest of the Science Centre as well. Help catch a crook in the Forensic Hide and Seek activity trail. Head off on a hunt inside and outside the Science Centre, using forensic science skills to seek out the hidden evidence and catch the thief. Follow the clues and try out the different forensic activities to narrow down the suspects until there is only one remaining. Will fingerprints give away the thief or will forensic ecology, where nature is used to solve the clues, uncover the criminal?
