The International Centre for Life’s mission is to be the most innovative place in the world for uniting people who are passionate about science. The International Centre for Life (Life) aims to ignite and nurture a curiosity in everyone for science, technology, engineering and maths and encourage the next generation of STEM professionals. Life supports world-class science in the region and makes a positive economic, social and cultural contribution to North East England and its communities.


Life delivers a comprehensive programme of science engagement; Europe’s biggest programme of hands on science workshops for students in state of the art laboratories; lectures; debates; outreach to disadvantaged communities and under achieving schools and professional development for teachers. In 2016, it hosted Europe’s largest gathering of makers at Maker Faire UK.  The Science Centre welcomes around 300,000 visitors each year, many of them from outside the region.
