Today’s shows:

11.00am 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!

14:30pm Built for Speed

How do we build machines?  What makes them work and what makes them go fast?  Why are some machines faster than others and how do we build machines for speed?

Today, we will be looking at how machines work and why some are faster than others.  You can build your very own machine out of recycled materials.

Make something a little different to take home with you!

12.30pm Pop Rockets

Explore how you can make a simple chemical reaction to make your rocket pop off into space!

16:00pm Predator plants

Discover why some plants have evolved to eat meat!  Understand the different traps that different species of carnivorous plants use to catch their prey and then make your own plant to take home!
