The KLA Lab

Dive into the heart of satellite technology in this hands-on lab workshop!

Craft your own mini satellite prototype, equipped with cutting-edge instruments for Earth observation.

Unleash your inner cartographer by creating a unique terrain, and then mapping it using data similar to how a real satellite would.

Experience the thrill of scientific discovery as you witness temperature fluctuations come to life on thermochromic paper, and harness the power of heat-detecting cameras to uncover hidden secrets from above.

Get ready to elevate your understanding of our planet’s wonders in this workshop that’s truly out of this world!
