Are we alone? Does life exist on exoplanets beyond our solar system? Join us for a one hour workshop and find out whether extraterrestrial life could exist and where we might find it. We’ll explore how scientists use extremophiles, organisms that thrive in extreme environments on Earth, to hypothesize what alien life might be like. Participants will also have the chance to create a clay model of their own alien.

Select from one of three time slots (10:30am, 12:15am or 2:00pm) to claim a spot. By registering for a time slot you are permitted to bring a group with a maximum of 4 people to the event.

We will be hosting 6 groups during each time slot and it will take approximately one hour to complete the workshop.

Tickets are by donation, with a recommended value of $10 per person in each group.

This program is recommended for children ages 8 – 10. Children must be accompanied by adults. Adults are encouraged to participate in the workshop with their children.

The safety of all visitors and staff is our priority. We want to welcome you in a safe and comfortable environment. We hope that you will enjoy being back at the Centre and reconnecting with our programs and activities. We ask that you review our ticketing and crowd management plan before the event (available for download here).

We do recommend that all members of your group wear face masks as the workshop will be taking place indoors.

Workshops will begin promptly at their scheduled times. Please arrive early to allow time for check-in out in front of the Space Centre.
