Drop in workshops facilated by Observatory Explainers mixing demonstrations with make and do activities.

Get hands-on in these short drop in family workshops themed around space science and exploration, from the most recent discoveries about the Solar System to our latest understanding of the wider universe.

Our team of Observatory Explainers include those who are studying astronomy at degree or postgraduate level and can answer your burning space questions such as: how big is the Universe and why is Pluto not a planet anymore? Also if you've always wondered what it takes to become an astronomer - they are the people to ask!

Please note that this session relies on voluntary donations to continue to support the provision of materials included in the session.
