Future Seas (Coral Reef Repopulation)
Wednesday 18 June, 3.30 ' 5.30pm (ideal age 11-14)
Pollution and climate change are disrupting the delicate balance of life in our seas, algae and corals that support many marine creatures are being destroyed. In this creative workshop we will introduce you to a fusion of art and science whilst we experiment with unique ways to 'grow' corals. Combining ink techniques and sculpture, you will repopulate a reef, plus live demonstrations of magnetic ferrofluid liquids. Once built, the newly repopulated coral reef will be brought to life using ultra violet light, revealing the fascinating properties that corals exhibit in their natural habitats.
