The much-anticipated Under 5 Fest is coming up. It is a special event for young children run by the excellent educators of Science Alive. Kids get to experience fun hands-on science activities and exhibits. There will be a petting zoo and storytimes. Kids can play with air and sound, amazing mirrors, and giant building blocks. Our own librarians will be there – providing a storytelling session at 10:30 am on the weekdays.
Under 5 Fest runs from 6th to the 12th of March 2015, 9:30 am – 4:30 pm daily and will be held at the Table Tennis Canterbury Stadium, 294 Blenheim Road, Upper Riccarton, Christchurch. The cost is $6 per person, but the under 2s get in for free. For group bookings or more information phone 03 365 5199 or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
Science Alive also have a cool after school science programme in ten of our libraries across Christchurch.
Excellent Science Alive educators lead children through interactive activities to stimulate their interest in science, and there is something to take home every week!
Programmes run during term time except the first week and no bookings are required.
