February Half Term Fun at the Royal Gunpowder Mills

Published: 30th January 2018 16:04

Professor Nitrate and Lad Rat at Royal Gunpowder Mills

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 SandBicarb 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 history of this 300 year old site comes alive in our interactive Main Exhibition and there is a Rocket Vault and Armoury to explore, and other displays and activities, including a Wildlife Tower and the Brambly Hedge display which celebrates the woodland family of the popular books which has come here after a successful tour around the country.  

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 www.royalgunpowdermills.com or follow us @gunpowdermills on all social media platforms.

* Activities are subject to change - always check before you travel.
