Come along throughout the day to explore our interactive exhibits and take part in today’s shows and activities.

No need to book!

Today’s shows:

11.00am and 2.30pm  It’s a hard rock life

Earth seems pretty rock hard, but actually more of our planet is liquid than solid! Help our communicators dig, swim and drill their way through the Earth’s layers and delve deep into the Earth’s crust to discover the rocks beneath our feet, and how they are created.

Make something a little different to take home with you!

12.30pm To the Core

There’s more to the Earth than we can so from the outside! Explore the inner layers of the Earth, from the crust to the core as you make your own cross section model from modelling clay.

4.00pm Design a planet

Explore the solar system, looking at why the planets look the way they do. Design your own planet, deciding on its characteristics based on what you’ve learnt.
