Intergalactic Laser Tag
The battle between the dark-side or the light-side ! This activity will give you the opportunity to live out your favourite sci-fi heroes by engaging with the enemy using laser guns. In two teams of 5 the objective will be to gain points by seeking out and ‘shooting’ those on the opposing team without being shot yourself.
The Science of Star Wars
Learn about the Science of Star Wars with Donna the Astronomer. The technologies of tomorrow were on full display back in 1977 as Luke, Leia, Han and the Rebel Alliance fought Darth Vader’s Galactic Empire. Some of those Technologies have become realities today. Others are just over the horizon and sadly, some may never become reality.
