The Future: in your Hands! L20’s Family Day brings together fun, interactive activities suitable to everybody, large or small.
The Future: in your Hands! will encourage the real members of Generation Future to affect change, and understand the importance of their individual choices - all through hands-on fun! Shape the future with your own hands by testing out edible bridges (Engineering with Chocolate), adding to an origami cityscape (Fold Your Future), classifying some hybrid future bugs (Mutant Insect Hunt), programming coding tiles with your own preferences for how the world should work (Model Futures) and getting down to the important nitty gritty - how many legs should a donkey have? Should farts smell bad?! - with LET’S BUILD A PLANET! As well as thinking about our futures, we’ll be remembering the important people who made up our pasts. Explore Ellie’s caravan in Journey with Absent Friends, finding artworks in every drawer, nook and cranny - reminding us that memories are kept alive by those that carry them! Discover Ellie’s stories about love and loss, and add your own too, in this interactive display.
