Science fun this summer at The Look Out

Children playing in water stream

The Look Out Discovery Centre has an array of activities to keep families busy this summer.

Visitors can enjoy the new space ranger workshops, inspired by the new Disney and Pixar film Lightyear, and find out the answers to some big questions about space, undergo some space ranger training, and launch their own rocket.

As well as the workshops, The Look Out Discovery Centre boasts a multi-story science exhibition with interactive activities and fun for the whole family. Send a hot air balloon skyward, have a go at creating an electrical circuit, play with boats in the indoor stream and meet a whole range of wild insects, amphibians and reptiles.

Cllr John Harrison, Executive Member for Culture, Delivery and Public Protection, said:

“Although schools are closed for the summer, learning doesn’t have to stop and it can still be fun, especially at The Look Out Discovery Centre.

“The science exhibition, always a family favourite, has so many exciting activities and challenges for the whole family to solve.

“Visitors can then treat themselves to refreshments from the Woodlarks Café, enjoy some play time in the park and get some fresh air and exercise with a walk around Swinley Forest.”

You can plan your day and book tickets to the science exhibition or the workshops in advance on The Look Out Discovery Centre website.
