What a wonderful first weekend of Christmas Elfstravaganza! 🎄🎅

Our Christmas festivities went down a treat, with jaw-dropping experiments, presents gifted in the North Pole Post Office and even real snow outside ❄️🎁

Here is what some of our families thought from this weekend:

"Fantastic from start to finish. Great Christmas activities, science show was excellent..."

"My two grandchildren were proud receiving the sequins for completing tasks and even happier when the elf gave them a perfect gift."

"Excellent event that my children loved. Extremely good value for money."

Luckily, we still have 3 MORE WEEKENDS of our Elfstravaganza! Make sure to book your tickets now to avoid missing out

“We visited the week of Halloween, all the staff were dressed up with sweets hidden around the place for kids. The exhibits were great and fun for all the family to play and learn. Would definitely visit again.”

"Staff were brilliant, lots to do and see and activities suitable for both my 2 year old and 10 year old, Will definitely be back next year for Halloween! And probably before then too"

"We always have a wonderful time at the Science Centre! The exhibits are fantastic and the staff are so friendly and enthusiastic and involved. The special Halloween event was magical and very clever — such a genius blend of educational and fun. Thank you!"

🚀SPACE CAMP🚀

This October, 40 Dundee kids ventured into space at Dundee Science Centre's Space Camp!

🌍They explored space, zero-gravity living, and more, realising that space is everywhere, even in our daily lives, from using GPS to texting on their phones.

👨‍🚀 They also learned about astronaut landings, tasted space station food, and designed rockets. Plus, they discovered how satellites protected wildlife like penguins and whales!

We had the pleasure of hosting secondary schools from across Dundee and Angus recently as part of a special Developing The Young Workforce session. ✅

Whilst exploring the Centre and learning about the skills needed to work in tourism, the students took on the challenge of creating promotional videos, which they then presented to their class. We hope the event inspired some of their potential future career choices. 💼
