Young people experimented with making a tie-dye effect using sharpies and rubbing alcohol to create a chemical reaction.

As part of Miller Technology High School’s Science Fair, we transformed our catapults into “paint catapults” creating a Jackson Pollock style splatter painting on large purple cardboard.
As part of the Miller STEAM project, participants made their own cardboard catapults.
Universum Mobili is an art + science wonder cart developed for the WOW Festival this year through CuriousWorks ReFILL Program.
Created by young people 12- 13 years from Miller Technology High School, it got pretty nice feedback from kids and parents alike.
“It’s just like a mini-Questacon” “My kid keeps coming back – fascinated by everything”
“How do we get this program happening in our school?”
Thanks to the vision of Claudia Chidiac (WOW Festival Curator) and Sally Atkins (MTHS Student Voice Advocate) and Sarah Emery, lead artist of ReFILL.
All the artists and teachers on ReFILL strive to bring wonder, opportunity and fun to the young people of Liverpool.
