Balloon To The Moon with Gill Arbuthnott

Supported by Maths Week Scotland, Aberdeen Children's Library is hosting the incredible Gill Arbuthnott for two STEM-based events on Saturday, 25 November. Youngsters will be able to join us for these free sessions - 'Balloon to the Moon' (8-12yrs) and 'Who is Dracula?' (10-14yrs).

Balloon To the Moon charts the history of flight, from the first hot-air balloon to the Apollo moon landings and beyond. Why did a sheep take the first balloon flight? What were the first animals to see the far side of the moon? Do you have what it takes to be an astronaut? Will you ever go on holiday to Mars? this is your chance to find out.

Suitable for ages 8-12. Booking essential.
