Inspiring the next generation
Our mission is to inspire the next generation of scientists, inventors and engineers. Everyone should feel able to do science and maths, and as a parent or caregiver you can help children grow their confidence.
All of the content on Wonderlab+ has been designed to help you and your children discover science together in fun ways. The activities, games and videos should be easy and safe to use and have been risk assessed.
You’ll learn more about science too as you play alongside your children. Why not explore our Objects and Stories content for adults from the Science Museum, National Science and Media Museum, Science and Industry Museum and National Railway Museum, or the Science Museum Group's online collection?
If you’re a teacher, home educator or community group leader, why not explore our Learning Resources website?
We want everyone to enjoy using Wonderlab+.
Our content is tagged with sensory icons to let you know if an activity might be fiddly, messy, noisy, stimulating or contain flashing images.
Wonderlab+ features movement and animations. If you or your child would prefer not to see movement on the website, you can change the settings on your device by following these steps:
iPhones and iPads: Settings > Accessibility > Reduce motion
Android phones and tablets: Settings > Accessibility > Remove animations
MacOS: System Preferences > Accessibility > Display > Reduce motion
Windows 7 and 8: Control panel > Ease of access > Make the computer easier to see > Turn of all unnecessary animations
Windows 10: Settings > Ease of access > Display > Show animations in Windows
The internet is a great place to find interesting, fun stuff. It’s important for young people to enjoy the time they spend online and be safe and happy.
Wonderlab+ does not feature links to external sites, with the exception of the links on this Grown Ups page and our videos. All videos include a button which links out to youtube.com.
