The visitor attraction, which is the North East of England’s leading science centre, will be home to exotic animals ranging from the cute and cuddly to the small and scaly, while science explainers will be teaching circus skills and in the planetarium, scientists will be giving an update on the latest news from the Curiosity Rover!
