The Discovery Zone is a huge selection of hands-on, messy and fun learning activities.

The focus of the Discovery Zone is to link STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) with food, farming and the countryside in a hands-on and interactive way.

Join local scientists to learn about cuddly microbes, bird migration, rockets, pink pigeons, beach conservation, modern farming, animal husbandry and much more. Polish up your scientific and engineering skills by model making, DNA detecting, nest building, solving riddles, experimenting with chemicals and food and by battling with bacteria.

All the activities and stands are free of charge and there are also free workshops and entertainment on the central Discovery Zone stage. All details and timings on the RNS website. The organisations providing free activities in the Discovery Zone include the Norwich Research Park, University of East Anglia, Institute of Physics, British Science Association, Forum Trust, Rocket FX, Alpha Inclusion, DNA Detectives, Morrisons, Norfolk County Council, Holkham Estate, Raptor Aerospace Ltd, SAW Trust, Nest Project.

The Discovery Zone is the hub of interactive learning and entertainment for young people and families
