Blast Off! with Eureka! this February half term

Eureka! The National Children’s Museum in Halifax, West Yorkshire is reaching for the stars this February half term as they celebrate the European Space Agency’s first British Astronaut Tim Peake’s mission in space with a whole fortnight of rocket science for their event Blast Off! running from Saturday 6th to Sunday 21st February 2016.
Bring your budding space explorers to Yorkshire’s unique children’s museum to join in with inter-galactic activities. Eureka! is the only place in Yorkshire where you’ll get to take part in Destination Space sessions, designed by experts in space travel (for children aged 5 – 11), to learn about Tim Peake’s life in space plus the science and people that got him there. Discover the role that you’d have in the space crew, and learn all about the effects that life in space has on the human body.

Visitors can have a go at rocket science, plus the Eureka! crew have got their very own replica Sokol space suit – just like the one Tim wore on launch day. Seriously, it’ll be out of this world.

All activities are free with standard admission or with your Eureka! Annual Pass.
