Catalyst's Scientrific Gallery has over 30 hands-on interactive exhibits allowing you to explore how chemicals are made and discover their uses.

Investigate colourful crystals, magical mixes, light from gases, how solar power works and much more.

There is even a corner for the under 5's called Mini Molecules with activities specially designed with younger children in mind.

Let the children play, test and touch to find out more.
