New workshops at Eureka for children with visual impairments – British Science Week


New workshops for children with visual impairments

To celebrate British Science Week on Sunday 15th March we’ll be running FREE workshops for children with visual impairments aged 7-11 to explore the solar system.

Join us for our Tactile Universe workshops and use 3D models and sensory activities developed by astrophysicists from the University of Portsmouth to explore the wonders of space and astronomy.

Children will get to create their own mini 3D models of the solar system to take home. Find out more on our website.

Places are free for visually impaired children aged 7-11 years and their families but must be booked in advance. Places are limited, so call Trizia on 01422 330069 or email to book your place.

The Trials of Galileo at the Square Chapel

Written by Emmy Award winner Nic Young and starring Tim Hardy (professor at RADA, veteran of the RSC and star of major European tours).
