The Moon is a fascinating piece of rock but how did it get there? What are those dark patches that look like a face? How can we actually see this lump of rock? What made all those craters? Why does it seem to change shape every night? So many questions! Come and find out in this fantastically fun workshop. Be prepared to get messy though we will be learning how craters are formed by making your very own surface of the Moon.
Wear warm clothing that you don't mind getting messy.
Please note that the workshop is for children only. We actively encourage adults to leave their children with us unless they require one to one support (please let us know in advance if your child has any additional needs).

PLEASE NOTE: The cost of the workshop is for the workshop only and does not include admission in to The Centre. If you want to stay in The Centre after the workshop has finished then you will also need to pay for the child/children who attended the workshop (discounted rate applies).
