Celebrate National Science and Engineering week at Snibston with our explosive new stage show, 'The dangerous science of mining'. • Find out about the hazards encountered by miners when working underground and how science has helped save lives and improve safety. • Meet a colliery guide and find out what it was really like to work down the mine. • Explore Snibston's indoor and outdoor interactive exhibits. Suitable for KS2 and KS3 groups, our stage show links to the science curriculum.
