This moontastic workshop helps lunar learners find out about our nearest rocky satellite.
Mini Moon Explorers will find out how the Moon was formed, guess the distance to the Moon, and test what the lunar surface might be like. They’ll make an Earth-Moon-Sun orrery and messy craters, and learn about the phases of the Moon… all in a fun and creative way.
This super fun workshop is aimed at children from age 4 upwards. A perfect fit for Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 children learning about the Moon for their Space Topic. It’s also great as a drop-in workshop for science fairs and special events.
Each workshop lasts about 45 minutes and works best with small groups of about 15 Mini Moon Explorers. We need an extra 15 minutes between sessions to tidy up and prep for the next workshop.
If you only have a small group or a single class, why not combine a half day Mini Moon Explorers workshop with a single planetarium show for the cost of a half day in the planetarium.
The costs for our Mini Moon Explorers workshop are:
Half day: £200
Full day: £300
ADD-ON: reduced costs available if booked with other activities… ask for details
Price includes all materials and specialist equipment.
