Science Show Theatre

Hop in and enjoy ‘The Pure Random Science Show’ featuring some of our favourite experiments. But here’s the twist; even our science communicators have no clue which ones are up next! Thanks to our giant spinning wheel, every show is unpredictable – it really is Pure Random!

Workshops & Activities

‘Arms in Action’

Visit the Design Studio on floor 2 to explore the world of prosthetics in our Meet the Expert activity. Engage in challenges using a body-powered prosthetic arm and delve into the engineering behind these devices with Strathclyde University National Centre for Prosthetics and Orthotics.

‘Egg Drop Challenge’

Activate your creative and critical thinking skills as you design and build a protective pod for a precious cargo – an egg! Launch it from a great height and find out if your egg survives...or splats!

‘Pollinator Trail’

Become a bee and buzz your way around the science centre searching for each of the flowers. Find them all and claim a prize that'll give a helping hand to your local bees.

Floating Wetlands Tour

On the canting basin, our floating wetlands provide a new habitat for many local wildlife. Swans, seals, otters and even kingfishers have been spotted. Join our knowledgeable front-of-house team on a free tour...who knows what wildlife you may see! Tour scheduled to be confirmed – ask for details at the ticket desk on arrival.

*New for 2024* We have three fantastic new 3D mini blockbusters heading to Scotland’s biggest screen!

Animal Kingdom 3D is a spectacular adventure where creatures of all sizes take centre stage. Travel to snowy forests, scorched savannas and the darkest depths of the ocean, and meet fascinating animal families from all over the globe!

In Flying Monsters 3D with David Attenborough, the world's leading naturalist investigates the fascinating world of pterosaurs – prehistoric flying reptiles with wingspans the size of modern jet planes. How did these take flight and why did they vanish?

Best suited to adults and older children, the visually stunning and much-anticipated new documentary, Dr. Merlin Sheldrake’s Fungi: Web of Life 3D is narrated by Björk and explores the vital role fungi play in the cycle of life, their significance in the forest ecosystem and their potential to inspire solutions to pressing global issues.
