The Discovery Lab is home to Kela, Orchi and Amar, travelling aliens on an earth exploration mission.
They come in peace.
They are are extremely invigorated by earth science, be it plants, bugs and clouds, why things float or the pH of lemon juice.
They're keen to learn more from you, the earth experts. So pop along to their pop-up lab to investigate, explore, think and discover!
