We really enjoyed our visit to We The Curious! We started the day with a 'light and shadow' workshop. We completed lots of experiments including splitting up white light, looking at how light travels to allow us to see and using prisms to make a rainbow.
We then spent time looking around the museum. Our favourite parts were the bubble area where we made ENORMOUS bubbles that we could step inside, magnetic sand, the 'leaning lounge' and the hypnotizing wheels.
We ended the day in the Planetarium! We watched an incredible show where we traveled through space! It was an awesome day, we would all love to go back!
