Construct simple and complex machines with Meccano during this hands-on STEM workshop.

Children learn about levers, pulleys, gear trains, inclined planes, wheels and axles whilst working in pairs or threes. Teamwork, problem solving and simply using the tools are all part of the challenge. Apart from applications of science and mathematics, this workshop exposes students to the importance of following instructions and provides an avenue towards improving spatial and fine motor skills.

Due to high demand and limited places, this event is strictly for children from 8-10 years.

For other things to do during the school holidays check out our complete list of holiday activities.

Parents/Carers of children under 10 years should remain in the Library during this activity.
