Free event sees science comes to life at Lichfield’s Erasmus Darwin House

A Lichfield museum will be bringing science to life by showing youngsters a range of fun experiments.

Erasmus Darwin House will host the event on Saturday (March 10) as part of National Science and Engineering Week – with visitors able to try putting a skewer through a balloon without bursting it and using a video microscope to look at cells.

A new addition to this year’s activities – which are held with the support of Lichfield Science and Engineering Society – will be Get Sparky! where children will be able to have a go at making an electricity pylon. There will be two free sessions available at 10 and 2pm, however booking is advisable as spaces are limited.

Alison Wallis, Manager of the museum said: “Every year this has turned out to be such an exciting event. It’s great that we can put on so many science activities but, at the same time, making them fun, easy and accessible – just the way science should be!”

To take part in the free Fun Physics, Brilliant Biology & Exciting Electricity event on March 10 just drop in between 12 and 4pm. For more information call the House on 01543 306260, visit or email
