 - Junior Scientists - Potions & Lotions

The first footprint was left in the Moon's powdery surface 50 years ago. Many more could be made within a decade by you and your friends. So how do we build a Moonbase, survive and thrive without the protective and nuturing atmosphere and resources of the Earth? In this workshop we explore the challenges we'll need to overcome to make the Moon home.

Family Trails


BRLSI also sells illustrated self-guided family trails (for only £1 each), which have been devised by the Science Cadets group. Each trail lasts approximately one hour:
Adelard of Bath - takes you around the Norman city, which England's first Mathematician knew well
Tree Gazers Trail in Victoria Park - helps you identify a score of celebrated and, in some cases, champion trees
Geology Trail - shows you some amazing rocks brought back from all around the world and used in the building of some of Bath's notable buildings in the centre of the city
Science Trail - takes you to sites in the centre of Bath associated with famous Bath Scientists
Queen Square Park Trail - explores the history of Queen Square in the heart of Bath with you. Be inspired by the amazing variety of trees in the park, too
The trails are available at BRLSI reception, at BRLSI, 16 - 18 Queen Square, Bath, BA1 2HN.
