These happen once a month during term-time, and it’s a time when we bring out a few more age-appropriate activities on to the floor for the youngest budding scientists to get stuck in to.
There are also storytime sessions, craft activities and sometimes even special guests from other toddler-based organisations on hand, so if you’ve anyone under three in your family, this is likely to be the best session to bring them along to.
Check out the What’s On guide to find out when the next one is happening.
Currently we have:
There is a cloakroom and locker area near the main entrance to Techniquest, where buggies and pushchairs may be left, free of charge, at the owners’ risk.
We understand that this can be challenging when you’ve a baby to look after, especially if you have other children with you who want to explore our space.
There are a few options available, but in general this needs to happen away from the main exhibits themselves, as warm liquids and delicate equipment — as our newer exhibits in particular tend to be — don’t really mix!
Unfortunately, we do not have any bottle-warming or fridge facilities for the public on site, so please be aware of this before you plan your visit.
Although these usually come with an Age Guidance rather than an Age Restriction attached to them (usually either 5+ or 7+), we wouldn’t usually recommend bringing in very young children or babies for a number of reasons.
We have a very strict age restriction on the KLA Lab of Ages 7+, as well as a policy of only allowing children to attend with an accompanying adult: with chemicals being used during these workshops, we have to make sure all concerned are as safe as possible. Please note that under no circumstances can babies or children under 7 be allowed inside this area.
Get in touch if there is any further information you might find helpful when it comes to planning a visit to us and we’ll do our best to advise you.
