Join us this Summer at Dynamic Earth and take part in our brand new interactive programme aimed at families ‘Operation Earth.’ Solve the puzzles of our planet with this amazing family experience as it gives you an insight into how scientists are working to solve some of the biggest environmental challenges on Earth.

Take part in our new family show, running throughout the day! Earthy is feeling a little under the weather and is going to the doctors for a check-up. Join us together with the help of expert scientists, as we investigate what is bothering Earthy. Become a trainee environmental scientist and help us investigate Earthy’s land, air and oceans, and see if together we can identify and find solutions to Earthy’s problems.

As well as our family show, we’ll have lots of other bespoke hands-on activities to take part in throughout the day! Intrepid explorers can investigate the microscopic world, take part in food chain Jenga, pilot a drone using simulator software, sample wildlife in our indoor meadow and much more

These activities are available as a drop-in experience as part of your visit to Dynamic Earth between 10am and 4pm. These activities are included with admission to the Dynamic Earth exhibition and are free for Explorer Pass holders.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Operation Earth are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
