Discover what a Tiger Toilet is, and the role of its wriggling worm inhabitants – pick and race your own worm champion!

In this interactive workshop, we are celebrating tiger worms, who chomp on toxic human waste from toilets to turn it into compost. Meet Imperial College London engineers and discover how they are using worms to transform toilets around the world, and why this is such an important issue. You can meet the worms too, be inspired by them to make your own worm artwork, and join in a wriggly worm race.
