Description

You're invited to... Mega Maker Lab

Join us at London’s only summer experience dedicated to the imagination, where families can tinker, experiment and play together. Imagined by young minds for the next generation of inventors and makers – everyone is invited!

What can I expect at Mega Maker Lab: Weekender?
Included with entry to Mega Maker Lab, you can explore across five creative zones designed to inspire creativity, invention, making and fun!

Imagine and Play Zone
Unleash your imaginations as a family with building activities and challenges.

- Try out the LEGO Build the Change challenge
- Create a giant collaborative sculpture using Stixx Machines to tightly twist paper into structural materials
- Add your course to a mega marble run and work with others to keep the ball rolling

Ideas Zone
Be inspired in this creative, focussed zone to come up with ideas to change the world.

- Get inspired by fun prompts to encourage you to think up ideas – anything goes no matter how whacky or bonkers!
- Explore the Invention studio with a showcase of other young inventors’ ideas

Challenge Zone
Take on challenges to make new ideas, that you dreamt up in the ideas zone

- Try out junk modelling with up-cycled materials to create things that fly or move
- Bring your own recycling and use our Plastic Shredder to make your own materials
- Take on wire making challenges inspired by Super City, our mini-city in the sky

Tools station
You’ve got the ideas now how do you make them a reality? At the tools station you can try out tools in a safe space to bring ideas and inventions to life or get help from experts if you need tools you’ve never used before. Glue guns, screwdrivers, hobby motors, LEDs and more can be used or checked out so you can get your creations moving.

Test Arena
You’ve built your creation, what now? Test them out, find out what works and what needs upgrading and learn all about prototyping. You can test your inventions in the test arena with wind machines, ramps, flight spaces and more.

Pop-up shows
At the weekends, there will be even more on offer with pop-up shows from exciting partners and experts on hand for inspiration.

Masterclasses in the Imagination Lab
On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays you can book 1 hour masterclasses for your child exploring everything from virtual reality to coding music, in the Imagination Lab. If you purchase entry to the Mega Maker Lab plus a masterclass in advance, you get entry to Mega Maker Lab for 1 child and 1 adult plus the 1 hour masterclass from £25.
