Events & Workshops

Lab in a Library

We provide workshops in a Library environment where the whole family can join in.  These are on a variety of topics and do have age restrictions.  Some of these workshops are suitable for all ages, ie “A trip to Space and Back” and some “Forensics and Crime solving” for example, is suitable for those aged 8 and above.  The prices vary for a two hour workshop but start at £3 per child and these workshops take part in Libraries all over Suffolk and Norfolk.

Do come back to this space where we list the next Library Workshops and where they are being held and the topics available.  All bookings are taken directly by the individual libraries.  Please note all children under the age of 8 must have a parent/carer staying with them during the activity.

Holiday Clubs

We will be soon able to offer a two hour workshop which is Science Fun including experiments and making science items, which are suitable for 6 years and above.  We will always list here where we are going to be each school holiday and how you can join in.  We always advise you to book in advance so not to miss a roadshow.

Our next Holiday Clubs and workshops where you can leave the children will be happening in the October half term so please watch our Facebook Page for details of upcoming events.


  •  We suggest you book the workshop in advance to avoid disappointment.  If you are unable to book then do come along and see if we can accommodate you!
  •  All of the workshops will be listed here with dates, times and locations, throughout Suffolk and Norfolk.
  • We charge £8 per child aged  6 – 15 years old for a two hour workshop.  Any child under 9 years old we ask that the parent stays with their child.  However, if your child is 9 years and above then you may leave your child for the two hours as long as you leave a mobile phone number so we can contact you if there is a problem with your child.
  •  We only have the facility to take your payment in cash on the day at the present time!

Coming Soon:   We will also soon be offering Holiday Day Camps.  Watch this space for details.

Term Time Science Fun

Sometimes our workshops are available during term-time which happen on a Saturday or Sunday.  These roadshows are more likely to be an event that you can attend where we are open to the public all day and are running workshops.  These will be for two hours and will be a minimal per head cost to the member of the public.

Please return for more information to where the Roadshow is going to be held and so you can find one near you.

Saturday Science Club

We are offering regular Saturday Science Clubs and these will begin in Ipswich, Bury St. Edmunds and Sudbury initially.  The Club runs for a six week period during the school term-time and it is aimed at age 7 and above.  The Club runs for one and a half hours and includes lots of science fun and games.  The children will be left for this time to join in and we ask parents/carers to pay for this six week course in advance and it covers all staff costs and resources.

This are beginning in the summer term (after the Easter Holidays) and

will cost £8 per session and pay for five sessions and get sixth “Free” so cost for whole course £40.

Science Fairs

The Kinetic team attend lots of Science Fairs and events that are free for the public to attend.  We would love to see you there where you can visit our stand and join in the fun.

We always list where to see us here so do pop and say “Hello”


Pop-up Museums

At Kinetic we have hand-held exhibits and also large “free standing” exhibits that can be loaded into a van and moved to any venue.  We have already brought the “Pop-up experience” to several venues and we are looking to visit more of the members of the public.

Do you have a venue or local town, museum or community centre that would benefit from our visit?

Contact us for more details and we will quote for our visit.

Science Festivals

Kinetic attend a large number of Science Festivals each year and all have sessions that are available to the public at no cost.  These events are aimed at families coming along and taking part in interactive hands-on experiments and exhibits and learning about the World of Science.
