**POSTPONED** Due to the extreme temperature forecast, this event will be postponed to another date.


Join the team at The Polar Museum and help to map the coldest places on planet Earth with a giant floor map.

Satellites circle our planet, remotely mapping important things about the world using different kinds of light. How deep are the lakes? How thick is the ice? Are the forests getting smaller? Drop-in and discover how seeing the Polar Regions from above can unlock their secrets.

Using a giant map on the lecture theatre floor, children will use different kinds of light to discover some hidden facts.

This is a drop-in, family-friendly and hands-on activity that is open to everyone.
