    LEGO® Big Build, 13 - 28 April (Level 4)

    Join us for our LEGO® Big Build event and get ready to unleash your creativity!

    From buildings and bridges, to tracks and trains, we have bundles of brilliant brick structures for you to create. Build your own train carriage to add to the rolling stock and watch as it travels on the rails. Add some stations, towers, bridges and more! Let your imagination run free and watch your LEGO® creation come to life.

    LEGO® Big Build is running DAILY from 13 – 28 April & is FREE with admission. Click here for full info & times.

    Secret World of Gases - Floor Show, 13 - 28 April

    Seeing is believing, but what about things we can’t see? Using our body’s senses we’ll investigate the invisible world of the gases in the air around us. We’ll find out what happens when we capture some of the gases and start testing them to reveal the startling and exciting properties they hold. We’ll also discover why we depend on the gases in the air to survive, and how a small change in what the air is made-of could have some unexpected effects!

    Heart of the Matter - Floor Show, 13 - 28 April

    Did you know that during every moment of every day your heart is doing something incredible inside your body? Sometimes we take this amazing muscle for granted and forget about its ability to keep us fit and healthy and full of life! Come and find out a little more about the wonders hidden in your heart.

    Bubble-ology - Workshop, 13 - 28 April

    Ever wondered how to blow the perfect bubble? Or how to make bubbles of different shapes? Investigate and explore the science behind the world’s favourite toy! Come along to this hands-on workshop to discover there is more to a bubble than meets the eye!

    Please note - at least one of these Floor Shows/Workshop will be running daily from 13 - 28 April. Please see staff on arrival for show locations & times. Floor Shows & Workshop are FREE with admission.

    Amazing Experiments – Lecture Theatre Show, 22 - 24 April (Level 5)

    Come and enjoy our fun-filled show as we take everyday science and GO LARGE!

    At W5, we love science and every day our teams deliver amazing shows with a range of experiments and demonstrations! As exciting as they are, we’ve often wondered what would happen if we made them BIGGER.

    Join us for 'Amazing Experiments' where our Demonstrators will look at simple scientific concepts and find out what happens if we scale them up. What do four leaf blowers, an oil drum and liquid nitrogen have in common? Come and find out and be entertained by the unexpected as we learn about the science all around us in a show where bigger really is better!

    Amazing Experiments is running DAILY from 22-24 April & is FREE with admission. Click here for full info & show times. Please note - this show contains some loud noises & may not be suitable for very young children.
