"How to Win a Nobel Prize"- Themed Interactive Literary Fun!
- Tue Jul 03 2018
Mary may only be small, but she has a big dream. She’s been doing experiments at home, and thinks science stuff is pretty cool – but how does a 10-year-old become a real grown-up scientist? Even … win the Nobel Prize?
Mary is the hero of Nobel-prize-winner Barry Marshall’s hilariously informative illustrated adventure book, How to Win a Nobel Prize. Now, in a special performance from the book’s co-author Lorna Hendry and illustrator Bernard Caleo, real-life kids will have the chance to follow Mary’s lead – and step into the wild, weird and wonderful world of breakthrough science. Along the way, they’ll meet Einstein, Marie Curie, DNA co-discoverers Crick, Watson and Wilkin, and many more.
This special Wheeler Kids interactive event will (literally) draw out some of the characters from the book, and get kids started on some serious – and seriously silly – experiments they can do at home. It’s free – and some clever kids may even win their very own (delicious) Nobel Prize medallion.
