  • Visit Wales VAQAS

Wildlife & Nature Event, Wed 17 Apr 2019, £4-£5




Come rain or shine, can you help us measure the weather? It affects wildlife in lots of different ways and changes from season to season. Let us help you become a budding meteorologist - seeing which way the wind blows, capturing rain and watching clouds are fab science techniques. We'll build a windsock together, make a rain gauge, create fog in a jar and even do an experiment that shows you how pressure is created in our atmosphere - it involves an egg and a glass bottle and is a very cool experiment! We'll also learn about the different clouds that there are and what they can tell us about the weather - we'll even do a spot of cloud watching ourselves!

Event starts at 11am and runs through to 2pm. We will stop for a half and hour lunch break so please bring a lunchbox with you (or there is a cafe just opposite us). All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Booking essential - Call 01691 870278.
