The World Without a Moon

Answering one of science's greatest "what ifs" ...

Since its creation over four billion years ago, the moon has been locked into the Earth's embrace. But it certainly makes itself felt - in ways uncovered by this intriguing, drama-based workshop. After a quick game exposing some unforgettable Moon Facts, participants work in groups to bring to life some of the moon's impacts - by imagining how different (and possibly non-existent) a number of aspects of life would be without it.

Suitable for: up to 30 pupils at a time, ages 6-13 (and beyond!)

Exploring (according to age): history, characteristics and composition of the moon; the moon and tidal behaviour; the moon and weather; the moon and evolution.

Duration: 1 hour + (depending on how many classes)

Cost: EUR 70
