Life on Earth and Other Worlds

Life on Earth and Other Worlds

10 August 2022 11:08 - 10 August 2022

Why is Earth such a good place for life? How would that change if we lived on a planet with a different Sun, or without a moon?

Astronomer Anne-Marie Weijmans returns with another fun-filled workshop to explore what makes life possible on Earth and what life on other worlds could be like!

This workshop is free and suitable for children aged 8-12.

All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Pre-booking for this event is not essential, however our Sun Tavern has limited space, so we encourage you to reserve a spot to avoid disappointment! Reserve your ticket via Art Tickets here or contact us at the Museum!
