'The Lab' Science Tent

'The Lab' Science Tent


 'The Lab' is Kidztown's Science tent where there are a variety of science themed activities, which inspire and encourage young minds to be creative, explore and think scientifically. Through experimenting and questioning children are encouraged to work out for themselves some of the magic and mysteries of how our wacky world works!

The Mad Hatters Tea Party brought to you by the Science Art Writing Trust

Children are cordially invited to drop in to our Alice in Wonderland themed science tent at Kidztown 2018 and attend the Mad Hatter’s tea party to take part in a range of peculiar science-based activities.

Taking inspiration from the potions that Alice drinks to shrink and grow, children will be able to explore the science of lenses which make the invisible visible and that bring the enormously giant up close! Using perspective photography and a themed
dressing-up box, children can become giants or be as tiny as mice. They will also be “invited” to join a Mad Hatters tea party workshop, running at advertised times throughout the day -  after all it isn’t “very civil of you to sit down without being invited”! Activities will include getting creative with natural plant dyes, nonsense poetry writing and making curious edible treats. 

With an array of activities on offer throughout the day, children will have the opportunity to make their own Alice in Wonderland themed creations to take home, while learning about the science behind them. (Fri/Sat 10-12 and 2- 4 and Sun 11 – 3pm)"
