Youngsters can spend the school spring holidays in outer space if they take off and land at intu Braehead.

The free activities for kids at the shopping centre and in Soar at intu Braehead are truly out of this world from now until April 22.A Mission to Mars is the theme for would-be space travellers in the central atrium with dressing up, arts and crafts and ride-on rockets.

Over in Soar at intu Braehead youngsters are invited to come along to an Astronaut Academy and witness the amazing pop-up planetarium where they can learn about the galaxy and take part in arts and crafts.

Free shows at the planetarium run throughout the day at various times from 12.15pm until 4pm and kids can find out about different things on each day of the week.On a Monday it’s astronomy; Tuesday, the solar system; Wednesday, exoplanets; Thursday, Mars; Friday, spacecraft; Saturday, human space exploration and on Sunday, it’s sci-fi in space.

Marketing manager for intu Braehead, David Lyon said: “We’re getting ready for take-off and the countdown is well and truly on for youngsters to come along and conquer the galaxies.

“Our activities are certainly fun and enjoyable, but there is also an educational element and the kids will certainly learn something.”
