Investigate the science behind light, mirrors, reflection and refraction and build your own cardboard periscope.

First designed for the Manchester Science Festival, these workshops offer an interactive and educational format for children to learn about history, science, technology and how these topics inspire the arts. Using a hands on, physical and comedic approach, this workshop really brings learning to life.

During the day performers will be mingling with the crowds as they go walkabout with their “interactive periscope”, giving people the chance to view our world from a slightly different perspective.
