The adventure will start in the Space Room where you’ll take part in fun and collaborative crafts and activities all about Earth.

We’ll start with an exciting (and hilarious!) science demonstration. Then, you’ll help us ‘grow’ our large installation tree by creating a personalised craft piece relating to the seasons and hang it on the tree’s branches. You can also play with the VR headsets exploring Earth from above and avoiding the space junk falling from the sky! Discover how we can look after our planet with sustainable energy by playing with the light crank. Showcase your muscles and use your strength to power enough energy for a light bulb! Finish up your Space Room adventure by exploring Earth’s atmosphere and why we can survive here compared to Venus and Mars!

After your Space Room experience, you’ll head outside to our beautiful green space (weather permitting). Join in on the countdown and launch water-powered rockets up into the blue sky.
