Celebrating science

Entrance to Science Centre at Woolsthorpe Manor

British Science Week is coming, and at Woolsthorpe we're ready for it!

Here at Woolsthorpe you can follow in the footsteps of Isaac Newton, exploring his scientific discoveries in the Manor House, the orchard and especially in the hands-on Science Centre.

During British Science Week some of our science team will be providing extra talks on the things that fascinate them.

Wednesday 15 March - European Space Agency Telescope Gaia

Thursday 16 and Saturday 18 - Prisms and telescopes

Friday 17 - The Oops awards - scientific discoveries which weren't quite what they seemed

Times vary - call 01476 862823 for more details.

The Manor House will be closed on Wednesday and Thursday but open for tours on Friday and general visiting on Saturday and Sunday.

On Saturday and Sunday 18-19 March we'll have family science activities exploring what Isaac Newton might be doing if he were a child at Woolsthorpe today. There'll be hands-on experiments and a good chance of getting messy, so be prepared...
