Have you got what it takes to be an astronaut? Join us for our fun and non-competitive maths mission as we challenge you, our budding space travellers, to develop your astronaut skills with puzzles, co-ordination, memory, measuring and recording activities. You will learn about our solar system and plan a journey into space. Will you pass the selection test and make it to another planet? Only time will tell. Good luck to you all. This event will last 1.5 hrs.

Please note that this is a pre-booked event only. Booking is essential as places are limited. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
