Think that is just dust blowing down the street? Maybe it is. But maybe it's a puff of tiny micro meteorites direct from outer space?

Find out for yourself when you join four local artists for an adventure in science...

Kids will be experimenting with basic science with the emphasis on having fun and generating interest in the way the world is made. Participants will be split into two groups of 8, each group will spend half the time searching for micro meteorites and looking at their finds (and probably other things!) under microscopes, and then the other half of the time experimenting with chromatography.

The workshop will be run by the artists and curator behind the latest Courtney Place Light Box exhibition From the Aether which celebrates a love of exploring the world around us through easily accessible science.
