Science at its best

Summer holidays are here! And if six weeks of entertaining bored kids fills you with dread, drag them down to Rotherham for some fantastic scientific fun.

With four hands-on interactive pavilions themed around the elements – air, water, earth and fire – housed within the giant former steelworks and two outdoor play areas - Magna is a great option for the family.

Each week during the summer holidays a changing programme of workshops for the whole family to enjoy will take place at the centre in Sheffield Road, Rotherham.

From windmill making to meeting real nuclear scientists, create your own fizzy sherbet to the explosive kitchen sink show – there won’t be a dull moment this summer at Magna.

For the more daring and adventurous thrill-seekers out there, take the zip wire challenge or ride the giant slide in Magna’s face of steel, provided by Snowzone.

Don’t forget your towel and a change of clothes if you want to splash and play in Aqua-Tek, the outdoor splash area as you will get very wet!
