’s ‘Galactic Outreach Workshops’ at World Museum, Liverpool’s Footprints on the Moon event – Apollo 50th Anniversary – 20th July 2019!

We had a fantastic time running our drop-in ‘Minuscule Phenomenon!’ workshops, along with Thaumatropes and ‘Pioneer of STEM’ activity at World Museum, Liverpool’s Footprints on the Moon event – 20th July 2019!

The fantastic event was held on the Apollo 50th Anniversary so we celebrated by running our drop-in workshops.

Visitors enjoyed taking part in our drop-in ‘Minuscule Phenomenon!’ workshops, which includes the opportunity to find and see Tardigrades through microscopes, learn all the facts and meet Mossy, our large-scale 3d printed model of a Tardigrade to see what their fascinating features look like in more detail.

Every time we run our ‘Minuscule Phenomenon!’ workshops, we take as many photos as possible of the visitors with Mossy (the 3d printed Tardigrade).
Mossy was very popular!
More photos of visitors with Mossy at the end of the article.

In addition to the activities above – we were also running our popular Thaumatrope workshop – Apollo theme!

Plus, we had our new ‘Design your own Pioneer of STEM’ activity.

We took our Galactic Photo Prop which was very popular with the visitors!
More photos of visitors with the photo accessory at the end of the article.

The lucky winner of our raffle was Dulcie Hutchinson(below)!
The prize – A signed copy of Ad Astra: An Illustrated Guide to Leaving the Planet – By Dallas Campbell and the chance to review it for the blog.
Professor Andy Newsam from Liverpool John Moores University pulled out the winning ticket.
