Interactive Storytelling: Going on a Safari


Pack your bag and grab your safari hat, we’re going on an adventure with Lizzy Cummins…


Inspired by Natural Sciences graduate, Helen Mylne’s research on elephants, we’ll be heading off to Zimbabwe…

Is that an elephant I see?

We are going on a safari to explore the animals. What will we see? Will we be able to track down the elephants? Join Lizzy on an adventure in the wild. Create your own elephant and get ready to go exploring.


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