A SCI-FI themed children’s event is being organised at the University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield.
Inspired by the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, youngsters are being invited to climb aboard their time machines and join UHArts for an action-packed day of science fiction and science fact.
Adventures in Time and Space at the University of Hertfordshire’s de Havilland Campus will include a series of workshops on Saturday, September 7, from 11am to 3pm.
Among the activities available are creating monster masks, a Lego robot challenge, a stop-motion workshop, and building and launching your own rocket with Jerry Stone, of Spaceflight UK.
There will also be a screening of A Hitch in Time (U), in which two children meet an eccentric professor, played by Patrick Troughton, and help test drive his erratic time machine.
Each workshop is approximately one hour and costs £5 per child, with the exception of the stop-motion workshop, which is two hours and costs £10.
The film screening is free to attend and takes place at 2pm in The Weston Auditorium.
Refreshments will also be available to purchase on the day.
