KidsSTOP Science Centre

I signed up for a science centre kidsSTOP membership a while back and was invited to a members preview on Saturday.

KidsSTOP, designed for children between the ages of 18 months to 8 years, is divided into many different zones (17, according to some reports). Each area has a different theme, for example, the critters room, where the children can see chicks, frogs, fish and hamsters, and a supermarket zone, where children can ‘buy’ ingredients and food, before going to the kitchen zone to ‘cook’ the food!

Samantha particularly enjoyed the zone where she could pretend to be a performer on a stage – there are a few children’s songs you can choose to sing or dance to. Other children who are off-stage can also participate, by being the cameraman or the producer!

There is also an area where you can learn more about your body, and take part in surgery!
