Workshops for young people run by WHALE Arts. Research meets fun!

On Saturday, primary school-aged children can get creative with a range of different activities! Namely:

  • Join Kirsty, Adeel, Carsten, Dawn, Jean, Lana and Monica from the OPTIMA project for microscope fun!
  • Jule Hildmann will be give you a chance to draw your ideal teacher
  • With Michela Massimi, you can build your own (take-home!) DNA model and explore how scientists use things like this models to investigate nature

WHALE’s regular team and trusty artists-in-residence will also be on hand to help you have the best of times
