Today’s shows:

11.00am Gums to Bum

What goes in must come out! Follow your breakfast on its journey from your Gums to your Bum. Watch as the food gets digested in-front of your eyes, and find out the specific job of each part of the digestive system.

This inventive show introduces concepts including: parts of the digestive system, enzymes, and why it’s best not to hold in a poo!

14:30pm Safe in Space

How amazing to be an astronaut! Going into space would be pretty cool, but have you ever considered how astronauts stay safe in space? Have you wondered why is life in space different to our life on earth? Maybe you have thought about why astronauts wear space suits and what are they made of? Perhaps you have thought about why is coming back to earth so difficult?

Our ‘Safe in Space’ show explores all these questions and provides you the answers!

Make something a little different to take home with you!

12.30pm Design a Planet

Design your own planet today.  Our activity will introduce you to the planets in our solar system and explore why they look different linking colours to planetary characteristics.

16:00pm  Fabulous Fungi

We will talk about the role of fungi in recycling nutrients and describe a variety of fungi found in the UK.  Then, have a go at designing your own fabulous fungi!
