Join a cheeky ladybug called Dolores, and a quirky firefly called Mike on an adventurous journey of exploration into the wondrous world of trees!Taking the perspective of insects, The Life of Trees reveals the magic of the microcosm. On their excursion, these two creepy-crawlies zip around a tree, and in doing so, playfully learn its secrets: How do plants get their food from the sun? How do they grow? How does water get from the roots to the top of the crown? And how does all this make life on our earth possible?Running time: 33 minutes.
On Saturday 17th December, we'll be opening the Market Hall main space between 10:30am and 3pm for visitors to try out a variety of immersive activities including VR, interactive gaming in the dome and 360-degree cameras!
