Inspiration Day

Thursday 23rd January 2020

A STEAMS workshop presented in association with Our Moon: Then, Now & Beyond, and in partnership with Ministry of Inspiration, with support from Duncan Steel

This “fun-day” STEAMS workshop is sure to charge your kids up with ideas and inspiration, just in time to kick off that back-to-school buzz.

Designed and peer-led by our crack team of super scholars – several senior students from local Nelson secondary schools – this event introduces children to a number of space-oriented curiosities which have tantalised scientists the world over.

Using Our Moon exhibition as a backdrop, children will work together with props and experiments to help try to answer some of the bigger questions of the universe, such as: what happens when there’s no gravity; how does an asteroid make a crater; could we survive on the Moon?

Our “Resident Space Science Guru”, Duncan Steel, will share his insights into asteroids and beyond, with the Ministry of Inspiration facilitating the day. Prepare for an inspired kid at the end of it!
