Dynamic Earth is launching a new interactive programme aimed at families – just in time for the schools half-term break in February.

The new interactive experience – Operation Earth – explores the environment with the aim of encouraging people of all ages to think about solutions to some of the serious challenges facing our planet.

The programme, which begins on Sunday 11th February, includes a family show and hands-on activities which look at environmental issues such as climate change and air pollution. Its aim is to involve family audiences with opportunities to investigate the microscopic world, experience drone simulator software, get involved with the food chain Jenga and experience the wildlife in the indoor meadow.

Marketing manager, Eilidh Massie is excited at what the programme has to offer: “At Dynamic Earth, we aim to inspire people and our Operation Earth programme is set to do just that. Where else can you fly a drone simulator, explore the Earth’s oceans and discover an indoor meadow all under the one roof?

“The programme offers fantastic opportunities for our visitors to really delve deep into the challenges faced by our changing planet and has just the right mix of fun, and problem-solving activities to encourage the whole family to get involved.”

Dynamic Earth also has a 4D cinema, the only permanent such facility in Scotland as well as a real iceberg, a bone-shaking earthquake and the Deep Time Machine which takes visitors billions of years back in time.

The innovative programme runs until October and is sure to prove popular.
