The Science of Frankenstein

The Science of Frankenstein


200 years since the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, we are delving into the science of the novel to explore the links between electricity and the body, and discovering just how vital electricity is to human life.

We won’t be stitching body parts together (no need to worry), but we do have lots to take part in!

Play a game of Giant “Frankenstein” Operation
Have a go at stop motion animation
Take part in an electronics workshop.

Please note: activities are weekdays only
