Prepare to go ‘out of this world’ and off to the red planet Mars in our action-packed activity morning!

Start your orientation in our state of the art digital planetarium to visit some popular destinations within our Solar System and beyond. Continue your mission with a brain-bending Mars quiz using voting keypads and featuring stunning images of the planet.

Finally take a virtual step onto Mars with our virtual reality activity to feel what it’s like to step onto the planet and identify features on the Martian surface. This will be combined with a geological rock handling demonstration to show what features to expect on Mars and what rocks might transform our understanding of the possibilities of life on the red planet!

Please note all children must be accompanied by a paying adult.
