Secret World of Gases




Take part in the Secret World of Gases from 10th February till the 11th of March and discover how gases will be used in the future. Find out how cold liquid nitrogen is, and how air can become a liquid. Explore how hydrogen could power our future, heat our homes, and run our buses.

This show is suitable for families with children aged 5-12.

The Secret World of Gases is a two-year national programme that is engaging, inspiring and involving school-age children and their families with the amazing stories and science of gases. The programme investigates the latest innovations, dispels myths and explores how gases will be used for a greener future. Delivery of the activities begins in the nine science centres in 2018.

The programme is led by the UK Association for Science and Discovery Centres and funded by The Royal Society of Chemistry and BOC, the UK’s biggest industrial and medical gases company.

Please note this show will run on weekends and during the mid-term, as well we close at 1500 on Tuesdays.
