Brainiac Live: Astronaut Academy

Taking place from Friday 29th March – Monday 1st April, join us at Royal William Yard for The Brainiac Astronaut Academy.

Get set to immerse yourself in the Mission to Mars, a challenge to see if you can be the ultimate Astronaut. It’s 2037 and the Brainiac Team are ready to explore new worlds but they need your help.

This 60-minute hands-on immersive activity led by the Brainiacs, provides young astronauts and their families with the opportunity to test their rocket design, engineering and space exploration skills.

The Brainiac team will help you build your ultimate space craft but choose your craft materials wisely, understand the science of space and remember it’s t-minus 60 and the clock is ticking to Launch. An out of this world treat to share with your family, don’t miss out by making sure to book your tickets.

Sessions will run each day for one hour at 10am, 12pm, 2pm and 4pm.

The one-hour long sessions will be held at 10am, 12pm, 2pm and 4pm in the Yard’s Brewhouse building (next door to Wagamama).
