A treat for all young astronomers: learn about Mars, become familiar with and enjoy the planet! Marvellous Mars is a workshop showcasing some of the most beautiful robot explorer images of Mars. We will also look at present and future missions to Mars by NASA and ESA. Children will draw and examine the surface of the red planet. The artwork created during this workshop will be exhibited in the Riverbank Children’s Gallery alongside the Deadly moons exhibition.
