Description

TUESDAY 13 FEB, 10AM – MIDDAY – SCIENCE IN THE ARCTIC

Join an artist and a scientist who met in the arctic circle. Have a go with scientific equipment and make your own arctic samples to take home. An exciting hands on workshop exploring science in a creative way.

How do scientists sample clouds? What can water samples tell them, and why do they want to know? Printmaker Bea met a group of scientists during her expedition to the arctic circle. Find out why scientists are on a mission to investigate freshwater sites heated by underground volcanoes.

In this workshop we explore what arctic scientists do and why they do it. Participants will have the opportunity to have a go with real data collecting equipment and make their own sample kit to take home. Everyone is invited to make an artistic contribution to our Imaginary Natural History Museum.

The Arctic Adventure children’s art/ science workshops are part of Bea von Preussen's Arctic Adventure exhibition at O N C A. They will be led by Bea and Ellie, ONCA’s outreach artist. There are also workshops on Monday 12 and Wednesday 14 Feb.

Cost: £10 per participant. For all ages up to 12. Under 5s must be accompanied.
