These events are included in the This Girl Can Family Day ticket but some are limited capacity – first come first served:
Impact! – Science workshops with University of Kent School of Physical Sciences -10.30am & 12pm (45 mins)
Join space scientists from the School of Physical Sciences for an out of this world experience investigating impacts. This session will introduce the world of impact physics using hands on experiments such as producing craters in sand and designing and testing space craft shielding with a small pellet firing pistol. You will learn about craters (on earth and in space) meteors, meteorites and micrometeoroids. Particular focus will be on the topic of space junk and the methods used to keep our spacecraft safe. Suitable for age 4 +.

Grand Design – Build the Ultimate 21st Century Girl!
Clay-modelling workshop with Estelle Rosenfeld – 11am & 1pm
This fun workshop will leave you with dirty hands and a wandering mind. Using clay and thoughts we will explore what a 21st century girl should look like. We will design together what she should be like outside and in. This ‘hands-on’ session will be an opportunity for a genuine reflection and discussion, where two reasonable people may disagree! This clay modelling and philosophy workshop is suitable for 4 to 99 years old. It is part of the research and development of Bonhomme, a new project from What’s Coming out of the Box.
Animate Arts craft activity – 11am – 4pm
Make a cardboard headdress to represent an inspirational woman from history, and have your photo taken with your headwear! You could make Amelia Earheart’s flying goggles, Frida Kahlo’s floral headband, Josephine Baker’s banana & feather headdress or Jane Goodall’s chimpanzee ears!
Moving Memory pop-up performances – Tipping the Balance – 1pm & 3.30pm
When the weight of the world is dragging you down, it’s time to welcome the queen of feminine wisdom into your heart! Arriving in suitably spectacular (and eco-friendly) style, she leads her merry Moving Memory cohort in a joyful carnival, raising the roof and bringing love and freedom to everyone who wants to make the world a much, much better place. A new, short, pop-up performance from Moving Memory Dance Theatre. Moving Memory is a company of older women who make performances and installations which challenge assumptions about ageing. The work, like life, is surprising and funny.
