Get your build on!
The kids will have a blast in this school holiday workshop where they put their imagination to the test constructing all sorts of contraptions. We’ll investigate the design and structures of towers and bridges to understand what give them the strength to hold up, we’ll create complex machines using common materials and undertake a challenge in making a spacecraft survive a landing!
Ages: 6+ years.
This program is presented by Fizzics Education as part of two weeks of science and engineering activities in these school holidays.
Please wear old clothes and bring a hat, sunscreen, water bottle, lunch and a snack (no peanut traces).

Frequently Asked Questions
Where is the program being held?
The Bowden Centre is located just off Caley Drive and is a 2 minute walk from the Visitor Centre and restaurant in the Australian Botanic Garden, Mt Annan. Park in the main car park and we'll have some signs to point you in the right direction!
My child is 4/5 years old, can they attend with their older sibling?
No, unfortunately. The minimum age of this program is set to ensure that children attending have the mathematical and problem solving skills to successfully program the robots and keep up with the pace of the program. Younger children tend to fall behind and can end up frustrated which can have an impact on the rest of the class.
