Enjoy events throughout the autumn holidays from 1 October to 6 November at Universeum – an experience you won’t forget in a hurry. There will be plenty of creepy science hidden amongst the spiders, slime and black holes. Do you dare to enter?
Spooktacular autumn holiday fun
Creepy science runs from 1 October to 6 November, offering everything from thrills and chills to hair-raising discoveries. Fearless families can roam our twisty corridors and halls discovering a variety of activities that focus on chemistry, physics, biology and engineering. Whether you decide to dress up or not, come and meet (or scare) our ghostly guides who will be haunting the building!
Frighteningly fun programme
During the autumn holidays we will be conjuring up a host of activities. Below is a small sample of what’s on offer. More activities will be advertised closer to the time.
From the programme:
The slime lab
What do you need for a great Halloween? Slime, of course! We’ll be creating a creepy atmosphere in the Chemistry Lab as we investigate various ways to make spine-chillingly sticky slimes. Take your macabre mixtures home and scare someone stiff.
What do you know about real-life vampires? Become an expert on mosquitoes, vampire bats and other bloodsucking creatures with our nerve-jangling quiz.
Welcome to an experiment show that will give you the shivers! Among the smoke and bubbles, we’ll be conducting some really cool experiments. Can we, for example, boil something hundreds of degrees below zero? Using liquid nitrogen, we’ll inflate balloons, make bangers and demonstrate other cool tricks.
Do you dare to challenge our brilliant boffin? Balloons that can’t be popped by pins and paralysing mind control. Come and try mischievous tricks in true Universeum style with one of our physics guides.
Mysterious sea creatures
What’s behind the myths and legends of horrifying sea monsters like giant squid and massive sea snakes? Join us on a journey into the deep and test your knowledge of the ocean’s wondrous creatures and enigmatic monsters.
