Make And Play Engineers - STEM Play / Skills for families with children aged 3-12
Want to spend quality time with your family where play is priority and get everyone involved no matter what age?
Includes free admission to the museum for the day
Designed for 3 - 12, but all are welcome
Enjoy a Make and Play Session where you will be invited to playfully create crazy constructions, play with fruit, or get messy with curiously colourful condiments without even noticing that all you do is discovering the brilliant world of STEM.
Thursday 5 August – When life gives you lemons, you make.... an electrical circuit.
Tuesday 17 August – Where there is STEM there is MESS (Mightily Exciting Super Slime...)
Wednesday 1 September – How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood. Well, we will not chuck the wood but hammer good and create amazing... things.
What you need:
- At least one very supportive grown-up. We know from experience that all mums, dads, uncles, aunties, older siblings, grandparents, carers are perfectly qualified for this role as no previous engineering experience is needed. (They are very good at handing stuff to you though.)
What you will get:
- Opportunity to be introduced to the world of engineering in a playful way! Each family will have a family tub full of playful goods to explore and make.
- A safe and relaxed space. While we love playing in the galleries, for this workshop we want to be sure you are fully relaxed in your own space, and we will play in our Learning Centre.
- Expertise! Our amazing experts from the Learning Team will encourage you throughout. They are experts in playful engineering. That means they are curious, they persevere, are imaginative, love solving problems and teamwork. They will happily offer their expertise and support you when needed.
