Come along February Half Term as Professor Nitrate kicks off 2018 with Mayhem in the Mad Lab! Join us DAILY between February 10 to February 18 for awesome activities and super cool science.
At the Royal Gunpowder Mills we mix science and fun together. Visit our “Science Stations” where you can try your hand at making your very own Floam and Space Sand to take home with you plus test the science behind Waterproof Sand, Bicarb Bombs, Ferrofluid and Fizzy Cloud Dough. Visit “The Rocket Room” where you can make your own air powered Rocket to launch and take home with you.
As well as these great activities there are interactive science shows with the Professor at 11.40, 1.40 and 3.40 where children and adults alike can learn about the science behind things that go whizz, bang and boom – not to be missed.

The Royal Gunpowder Mills opens its doors DAILY for Mayhem in the Mad Lab from February 10 - February 18. Doors open 10am, Last Entry 3pm. Visit our website for details
