Who are we?

Science Play is a unique collaboration of real scientists, teachers and experts in outdoor and indoor commercial play design who have teamed-up to create unique and bespoke playground equipment that encourages children’s minds as well as their bodies.
Science Play is all about learning outdoors and learning through play.
