Science In The Swamp: Dinosaur vs Superpower

Event Families
Free - No Ticket Required

Science in the Swamp is an outdoor family day that gives children and their parents the opportunity to learn about science in a relaxed fun atmosphere. This year’s “Dinosaur vs Superpower” will combine two of your kids’ favourites.

Batman, Spiderman, Wonder Woman, or Cat Woman – we all know about their fantastic strength and abilities. Join our scientists at their stall and they will show what amazing superpowers you find in nature. Super sight, super hearing, super strength, camouflage are only some of the ones you will be able to work with.

The incredible roving Dinosaur will be coming back as well and show you some pre-historic fauna.

We encourage our guest to come in their favourite super hero’s outfit and look forward to a fun day of superpowers.
