Inventing & Machine Making (ages 8-11): 1 or 2 Days
Time & Location
About the Event
NOW SOLD OUT
This class can be booked as a one-day or two-day workshop. Children can book into either the first or the second day, however we recommend attendance on both days.
During most of the morning's session on the first day, children will be introduced to the six basic machines and will have a chance to create their own. We will discuss the engineering principles and use of each machine type. The activities will be very hands-on to give children plenty of opportunity to learn from doing.
They will then move on in the afternoon of the first day to using what they have learnt to design and build their own simple machines, working in small groups. As they build, they will be required to use engineering principles, problem solving, creativity and collaboration.
During the second day, children will engage in a range of making activities where we construct STEM related machines, applying principles from the first day to those who also attended on that day.
As always at Inventors & Makers classes, the learning will focus on promoting problem solving, creativity and collaboration, while children take part in engaging activities.
We'd love to have your child join us at this class to learn new skills and have a whole lot of fun!
