Do you know the next budding Brian Cox, Dara O’Brien or Alice Roberts? Bright Sparks summer camp is a week-long adventure for inquisitive young minds aged 8-13 years old.

Typically these fun, classroom- based workshops last between 60-90 minutes and feature a range of hands-on practical STEM activities specifically developed for this age group.

Floor visits – Supervised by Summer camp staff, children will have an opportunity to explore W5’s dynamic exhibition areas with over 250 + interactive exhibits including their latest and biggest exhibit Climbit.

Demonstration Shows – throughout the week there will be an opportunity to see some of W5’s many Sci-Five floor shows.

Project – Over the course of the week, children will work with each other and the staff to create a short movie of their experience. As well as filming exhibits and workshops, they will have a go at learning some of the demonstrations and tricks used in our science magic show and film those too. They will then learn some basic editing techniques to create their very own W5 movie.

Ten-pin bowling/cinema – Making the most of W5’s convenient location, W5 can offer the children a fun afternoon of ten pin bowling or a trip to the cinema.
