This workshop will include lots of messy gas experiments and an amazing under the sea carbon food cycle chain video in the Dome.
With visualizations based on satellite monitoring data and advanced supercomputer simulations, the children will explore the inner workings of Earth's climate system “The atmosphere, oceans, and the biosphere”. They will ride along on swirling ocean and wind currents, dive into the heart of a monster hurricane, come face-to-face with sharks and gigantic whales, and fly into roiling volcanoes.
They will learn about: the relationship of Earth and the Sun; life and the carbon cycle; plate tectonics and its role in the carbon cycle; and much more. Also the comparison with Venus. The story of our sister planet shows just how unique Earth is in its ability to regulate atmospheric CO2 and global temperatures.
We do require a parent or guardian to stay with attending children for all of our sessions. One £6.00 (£5.00 + VAT) ticket entitles 1 CHILD and 1 ADULT to attend a Science Zone Workshop. Please note there is an additional charge of £2.00 for any extra non participating children and/or adults with a maximum of 3 due to space constrictions. Ticket includes free access to our dinosaur den and sensory rooms, where the kids will find numerous interactive activities and real fossils.
