A Planet Zebunar Children’s Workshop with Irish Astronaut-in-training Norah Patten is taking place at the library in Kildare town today, Wednesday October, 3.

This interactive workshop will engage the next generation of scientists and astronauts through hands-on activities including mission-patch design and character development.

Norah will share some footage of her training, including acrobatic flight and spacesuit training before participants venture on their own mission to save Planet Zebunar.

According to organisers Planet Zebunar scientists have discovered that their planet is in great danger!

It is now up to the children of Planet Zebunar to work together to find a solution to save their home planet.

This is a closed event for schools.
