The SunSpaceArt team will be running ‘drop-in’ workshops for children during the family weekend (23–24 March 2024) at the Cambridge Festival. The activities will involve making colourful ‘pop-up’ and collage cards about the Sun, Solar System and space.

The age range targeted is ideally 5–11 years old. As a drop-in event, the capacity will be determined by the space available (two large tables + 12 chairs, plus a board for posters), and the time children stay doing the activities (usually around 20–30 minutes). All art resources will be provided. These activities should be under cover (indoors or in a marquee).

SunSpaceArt activities ( provide an imaginative way to learn about the Sun, Solar System and space travel, to create inspirational artwork, and also to meet scientists and artists.

Professor Helen Mason OBE is a solar scientist at the University of Cambridge. She has worked for many years on NASA and ESA solar space observations. She has worked extensively with school children throughout, and leads the SunSpaceArt project, funded by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC).
