Activities Available

You can book on to the following science show and special guest workshop at the time of booking:

The Science of Sound
Times: 35min sessions at 11am, 11:45am, 12:30pm, 2pm, 2:45pm, 3:30pm
Age range: 5yrs and over
Join us on a sonic journey where science comes to life. Through fun experiments and interactive demonstrations, we’ll explore the fascinating world of sound, from vibrations to pitch and everything in between.

Noisy Toys: Music & Noise Improvisation Games
Times: 45min sessions at 10:30am, 11:30am. 12:45pm, 1:45pm, 2:45pm, 3:45pm
Age range: 5yrs and over
We will experiment with familiar instruments and unexpected ones. What does an egg slicer sound like? How about a slinky? A rubber band? A CD ROM drive? A mechanical violin? In groups we will explore the musical potential of everyday objects and strange Noisy Toys, then we will organise our sounds and create original music. Taking it in turns playing in different sections of our orchestra and conducting, beautiful music will flow! Or a horrendous cacophony maybe… This activity will be controlled by an experienced music leader, but it could get noisy at times so we will have a quiet space if needed.

And finally, we will have the following drop-in sessions:

Eureka! Sound Explorers
Times: Various pop-ups throughout the day
Age range: All ages
Watch out for the Eureka! Sound Explorers who will be investigating sounds and music throughout the day.
