Event description

Description

This event is suitable for children aged 5+.

Please note, due to space limitations, one full price ticket purchase entitles one accompanying adult to attend for free.

Come and spend some time tinkering to create a fantastical invention of your own. Using cardboard, recycled junk and a few simple techniques we can get you on your way to engineering acclaim. Working with renowned cardboard engineer Lottie Smith, invent, construct and sculpt your own ingenious cardboard creations.

Together let's build a gigantic, whirring, whizzing machine to help solve everyday problems. Perhaps a machine to tidy your room? A translation device to talk to your pets? Or something else to help make the world a better place.

Working in four groups, you will each begin with the same set of individual parts to use as a base to build a collaborative cardboard contraption - how you arrange them, how you add to them and what they become is up to you!

This event is part of PLAY+INVENT, Discovery Museum's family programme for budding inventors, designers and makers! For more information, visit www.discoverymuseum.org.uk/play-invent
