Explore Your Universe


  • Capacity: 180 pupils
  • Duration: 45 minutes
  • Type: Science Show
Book Session

Our eyes can only see using visible light, but there’s an entire spectrum of other stuff to see if we use the right equipment.

Join us on a tour of the electromagnetic spectrum as we experiment with different types of light. This show helps students get to grips with electromagnetic waves as we look at gamma and x-rays, infrared, visible light, ultraviolet, microwaves and radio waves. Your students will learn how to stop anyone from changing their TV channels using light and how scientists use different wavelengths to explore the universe.

Please note: This session is only available as part of a 'Build your Own Discovery Day' package, for more information check out Visiting Thinktank page.

Costs: £375 for full day or £240 for half day.

(Available Monday - Friday).
