Embrace Easter With At-Bristol!
Tue 27 March 2012
Ready to dust away the winter cobwebs and get active for spring? Join At-Bristol this Easter for a whole host of seasonal activities exploring the wonders of growth and new life.
Join us to discover what this season has to offer with Spring Unearthed; our brand new activities available from 31 March to 15 April. Visit Live Lab for the chance to create your own cress head character or take part in a daffodil dissection! Did you know there are over 25,000 varieties of daffodils with colours ranging from yellow to pink! Find out all there is to know about the famous flower and see what is hiding behind the petals.
Karl Byrne, At-Bristol’s Live Lab and Shows Officer says: “I’m really excited about the new Live Lab activities running over Easter. Some of the activities are things that you may have done at school but with an original, interactive twist, whilst others will be a completely new experience, further enhanced by our fantastic staff and volunteers.”
Spring Unearthed also gives you the chance to discover how fossils are formed, and even how to make your own! Discover the cycle of rocks as you become a geologist for the day, investigating how one rock can form another or find out how old a tree was on the day you were born using tree rings!
The adventure continues from 6 March to 28 May in our latest presenter-led Planetarium show Spring Night Sky. Get intergalactic as you sit back and discover what wonders you can find in the sky from your own back garden this spring.
For the younger explorers there is our Little Stars Planetarium Show running between 31 March and 15 April, designed especially for the under 5 astronomers. Join a member of the At-Bristol team as they lead you through a story that will take you out of this world and introduce younger adventurers to the spring night sky.
What’s Easter without a bit of chocolate? Celebrate the Chocolate Festival by getting creative and doodling on one of the biggest canvases in the city – the At-Bristol building! On the 7 and 8 April, Drawn In Bristol will be on hand to inspire and illustrate the glass under the colonnade by the At-Bristol café. Feeling peckish after all this activity? The At-Bristol café will be serving a variety of homemade chocolaty treats including chocolate & toffee muffins, chocolate chip cake, brownies and blondies to name a few! As a science centre, we know that chocolate can make you thirsty, so to add to the chocolaty treat, we will give you a free standard sized hot drink when you purchase any of our yummy chocolate creations!
