What is it?

Following the huge success of last year’s sell out Lab Live: Why oh Why?, OKIDO and the Institute of Imagination have teamed up again to continue their mission of inspiring the next generation of innovators, scientists and makers. Have you ever designed a space robot? explored an exoplanet? or wondered what nature looks like up close? From space exploration to LEGO coding, there’s something for all the family to enjoy across 12 engaging activities.

This Lab Live will inspire the next generation of innovators, scientists, makers and inventors by testing their curiosity, exploring new worlds and seeking out new ideas.

Have you ever wondered how we explore space? what nature looks like up close? Or how others feel and experience emotions?

We’ll have 12 in-depth, hands-on activities from iOi, OKIDO and amazing partners including LEGO coding, building and design challenges, microscopic art activities and more.

Which activities will there be?

We’ll be announcing activities over the next few weeks, here’s a few highlights to get you…curious!
