DynaMites Science Sessions2024-04-24T14:34:35+01:00


Interactive fun with science for under 5s


Being part of Dynamic Earth’s DynaMites is a wonderful first step to ignite a life-long passion for the world around us. Each week in our 45 minute long sessions, children under 5 take part in an exciting, hands-on science storytelling workshop with our expert team.   

If you’re looking for a way for your child to explore the natural world in a safe environment, book their place on the next DynaMite’s session and watch them grow into a budding scientist! In our sessions, well learn through a range of fun activities exploring topics like dinosaurs, oceans, wildlife space, and much more. 

DynaMites sessions run on Fridays at 10am.

We run DynaMites every Friday during term time for children aged under 5 years old and an accompanying adult. Grown ups are encouraged to join in the sessions explore with their little one the wonderful world of science.  

At Dynamic Earth, we have strict safeguarding policies in place to make sure your child has fun in a safe and nurturing environment. We also have a range of resources to support children with additional needs. If you have any questions, please get in touch with our team at: enquiries@dynamicearth.org.uk

What is Dynamites?2024-04-18T12:05:23+01:00

Dynamites is Dynamic Earth’s Under 5’s programme, where little ones and their grown ups can discover and explore the natural world together! Our DynaMites workshops are 1-hour sensory storytelling sessions developed for children under the age of 5. They cover a variety of topics including Dinosaurs, Space and animals.

What do the sessions entail?2024-04-18T11:27:35+01:00

Lead by a friendly member of Dynamic Earth’s Learning & Engagement Team, each Dynamites session is based around a specific theme which you will explore with your little ones through storytelling, show and tell, experiments and crafting. Workshops last 1 hour.

Can I join my child in the session?2024-04-18T11:29:03+01:00

Yes! We encourage all adults to join in with the session and explore with your little one. There are 12 spaces available per DynaMites session, with one ticket admitting both an adult and child.

Are you able to take children over the age of 5?2024-04-19T10:43:39+01:00

Unfortunately not, our DynaMites sessions are specifically designed with under fives in mind. If we learn your child is six or over, we reserve the right to ask you to leave the session.

Do you have a child aged between 6-12 that’s interested in science? Take a look at our Dino’s Science Sessions, an interactive hands-on science club which runs every Saturday during term time.

My child has an additional support need, what support can you offer them to make the most of DynaMites?2024-04-18T11:30:26+01:00

We do our very best to create a welcoming and inclusive club for everyone and we ask that parents/guardians make us aware of any additional support needs at the point of booking and get in touch with us directly if there are needs we should be aware of and can potentially make adjustments for.

Whilst our team will do everything we can to support, we cannot offer tailored 1:1 support for children with additional needs and unfortunately, we cannot control factors which some children may find overwhelming as part of the club, such as noise levels from other children.

What will happen on the day?2024-04-18T11:43:11+01:00

We’re so excited to welcome you to DynaMites! When you arrive, we advise that you meet the DynaMites leader on our top deck Stratosphere level, which can by reached by the lift from the car park or by the main entrance to our science centre. Our team leader will take you to our Learning Bases, where the session will be taking place.

If you are attending the session with buggies or prams, lifts are available to use and there is room for you to store your pram in the Learning Base. We also have designated pushchair storage space upstairs on the Stratosphere.

If you’re running late, don’t worry! Please speak to a member of our Visitor Services team on arrival and they will be happy to show you to the Learning Bases.

The session lasts around 45 minutes, but if you are welcome to come and go as you please if you need a bathroom break or your little ones start to get a bit wriggly!

Adults are responsible for their child at all times.
