Interactive Storytelling: An Arctic Adventure


Become a scientist as we head off on an Arctic adventure…


Inspired by the research of Dr Philippe Blondel, join Lizzy and some other characters to find some icebergs. What does it sound like? What happens if the icebergs break?

In this playful workshop, you will have the chance to make creatures, explore sound and tell a new story.

This workshop is recommended for children aged 4-9 years old, but family and siblings are encouraged to join in!
