Workshop 1: 11am - 1pm / Workshop 2: 1.45pm - 3.45pm

£3 per child (plus booking fee), £1 per accompanying adult (plus booking fee)

Come and spend some time tinkering in our Great Hall to create a fantastical invention of your own. Perhaps you have ideas for a deep sea diving vessel, a flying contraption, a suit for exploring other planets or a pair of goggles that’ll help people see back in time?

Using large-scale 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, cut, stick and marvel at what you can create in just a few hours.

Why not pop into the Discovery Museum’s Fabricating Histories exhibition for some inspiration from 19th century inventors such as Brunel, Lovelace and Babbage?

This event is part of Play + Invent, Discovery Museum’s new family programme for budding inventors, designers and makers!
