This Family Saturday Activity invites the whole family to take on our monthly challenge, with a special welcome for Dads.

Dads are currently underrepresented at our family workshops and this session encourages Dads who want to spend quality time with the whole of their families or just their children in a museum environment.  Explore a variety of playful STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) challenges. As a team, have a go at all of them to explore, play and learn.

As part of the 75th D-Day anniversary commemorations, we are taking inspiration from two parabikes in our collection which were used during the Second World War. We will be making, testing and exploring parachutes and parabikes.

Drop in | £5 per family (up to 3 people, must include 1 adult, additional person £2.50) per session. (Cash only)

Location – Learning Centre

Designed for age 5+, but all are welcome
