The one that goes whoosh
The totally random science show.
Just a wee message to say Thank You to the girl in your shop who served us today. We had been to the carnival and my wee one had won tokens at the amusements but not enough for a prize. I told him we would take the tokens to a shop and get something on the way home. So we stopped at your shop and my son chose a snakes and ladders game. I gave him the tokens to pay the girl. And she played along great whilst I managed to slip her the money to actually pay. My son has Autism so this was a big deal for him. And it made his day which in turn made ours. The girl was really attentive and aware of what was going on. The simple things that people can do that make all the difference. πŸ˜€. Have a Happy New Year πŸ’—
Hi Glasgow Science Centre, I would really like to book a party for my daughter’s upcoming 5th birthday, but having looked at your website, I am dissuaded because parents of invited guests have to pay entry and presumably parking on top? Could you advise if you have any all inclusive deals? I would not expect guests to incur any charges. Thank you.
How accessible are you from the city centre via public transport?
went to the science late - fright night last night. We all had a absolutely brilliant time it was so much fun. So funny, we will certainly be doing more science lates. πŸ˜‚
