Come MAKE with us during the second week of the Easter Holidays
Monday 9th- Friday 13th April
Daily from 9.30am to 4pm
This week-long Inventors Club is aimed at children aged 9 -14 years of age
During the week you’ll get to make a Escape Room Game, A Super Slime DIY Video, Treasure Hunts, Race Robots & tinker with Toys to connect them to the internet and our 20ft Shipping Container Toybox. Think of it as a chance to play with ideas, tools, tech, clay, messy materials and come up with your own inventions too.
You’ll hear from people who are makers and inventors and as a group through the week you’ll develop a YouTube Channel of the stuff you make as well as pick cool content from other inspirational DIY YouTubers globally.
