Calling all Young Scientists, come and visit the Bio Bus at the Covey Tent at the GWCT Central exhibit, the state of the art mobile lab, become a disease detective and learn about the ticking time bomb, look through microscopes and talk to scientists.
Inside the Covey tent beside the Bio Bus to test your bird and mammal ID skills, put our new technology into practise and see how your results might be used. Prizes to be won for all levels. For those needing a more relaxing time we have lovely countryside stories being read in our giant bird nest throughout the weekend.
Artists amongst you must join Julian Jardine in his ceramic workshops, free for all. Perhaps you are more of an inventor or a crafter, take part in the Bidwells ‘Planet Positive’ workshop or be a superhero and invent an idea to help stop climate change.

- Saturday Workshops: 10am, 11am, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm
- Sunday Workshops:10am, 11am, 12pm, 2pm, 3pm
