The Making Sense Trail

Welcome experimenters!

Our Nina and the Neurons themed 'Making Sense' exhibit trail has been developed to help young children learn to experiment and develop their powers of observation using their 5 senses.

Some of the exhibits explored in our trail will be familiar to children from the CBeebies show. You will find them on Floor 1 of our Science Mall.

You can download icon Nina and the Neurons - The Making Sense Trail Guide (3.6 MB)* to bring along on your next visit or pick up a copy on Floor 1 of the Science Mall.

There are also some fun activities for you to try at home or in the classroom - all related to senses. Take the taste test, make a flip book and more!
