The Sesnory Space

We know that a science centre can be overwhelming at times, that’s why we have created a calm and relaxing area designed to help visitors that might be feeling overwhelmed or over stimulated whilst exploring Aberdeen Science Centre. The space includes dark dens, a weighted lap buddy and a variety of sensory fidgets, light-ups and ear defenders to be used within the space.

This space for kindly funded by ABZ  Propeller Fund.
