Designed for age 11 - 16 

Join us at Coventry Transport Museum for this MicLab workshop (Made in Coventry Lab) with the expert team from the Warwickshire Manufacturing Group from University of Warwick for this unique engineering and creative workshop. Through a series of exercises, children learn to write computer programmes to draw out shapes, applying their knowledge of geometry and measurement. Then they create a pattern based on their own design inspired by Coventry, adapting it to take advantage of the greater intricacy which can be achieved by the embroidery machine.

As part of this 3-hour workshop, all participating children will receive lunch, served from our museum café, Esquires. Please let any food allergies be known at the time of booking. Parents are not required to stay for the duration of this workshop, but are welcome to, should they wish to. 

 

We have HAF spaces available at this MicLab workshop. HAF is the Holiday and Activities Food Programme from Coventry City Council, funded by the Department for Education. If your child receives free school meals and lives in Coventry, they should be eligible. For further information and to book any of the above activities, free of charge and with a pre-packed lunch provided for your child too, please visit: www.coventry.gov.uk/HAF
