School visits

Explore, investigate and have fun with science

School visits to The Look Out encourage children to explore, investigate and have fun with science, technology, engineering, art and maths.

We have over 20 years of experience of school visits from Foundation Stage, KS1 and KS2 pupils.

Explore what we can offer your school on this page, or contact us to find out more and book a visit.
