Half term fun at Woolsthorpe

Launch yourself into a ‘Planets & Discovery’ themed half term at Woolsthorpe.

You can follow a free Weird Planets Trail, and get to grips with the scale of the solar system, as it weaves its way around the site.

Join in one of our mid-week Planets & Discovery workshops. Experience the colossal scale of the solar system, get to know our weird and wonderful planets and make parachutes to bring spacecraft to a safe landing. Spaces are limited, see below for more information.

Once that mission is complete, you can test Newton’s theories in our hands-on Science Centre. Explore Newton’s laws of Motion and get dazzled in our Light Workshop. Find out whether gravity works for everything in the same way. Our science volunteers can help you to work out why it does (or doesn't).

Finish off the day with a tasty local Bluebell Dairy ice cream!
