Did you know that Life is a charity?

Welcoming about 300,000 visitors a year, our purpose is to help people of all ages, from all communities, explore science and to discover its relevance to their own lives and to inspire the next generation of STEM professionals. This purpose has never been more crucial than it is today. 

COVID-19 has had a massive impact on us. Please support us so that we can continue to make a difference.
