This Makes That with These- Wind up Engines

A few of our oldest cars have engines that were wound up with a starter handle. In this session, we will find out a little more about these and other engines and then have a go at making a mini engine to take home.

This summer we are introducing our exciting new family session, This makes That with These. This session invites you to satisfy your curiosity and use your creativity. Look inside and see how things work and create your own inventions with our challenge kits.

Let’s be curious!

Location – Community Space (Exhibition 7, Black Taxi)

Designed for age 5+, but all are welcome
