Mars Odyssey - Family Show
Showing: 01 July to 01 September 2019
We are planning a journey to the ‘Red Planet’ and we need your help to get there!
Have you ever met a Martian? Well, maybe not – but you might some day! Come along to “Mars Odyssey” and learn all about the great, red planet – and how we might get people there some day. Learn about the dangers you would face on your journey to Mars; the challenges we would have to overcome to live on the surface of the planet; and answer the age-old question: could you really grow potatoes on Mars?
Medieval Mechanics - Family Show
Showing: 02 September to 31 December 2019.
We often think of the Middle Ages as “a time of ignorance and superstition”. In truth it was a period of much invention. From war machines to agriculture; spectacles to chemistry and scientific method, science owes a lot to medieval times. Join us for this family show to hear about machines invented in the Middle Ages and what these have become in modern times.
