Description

GEM - Games for Enquiring Minds

GEM is an event for children currently in years K-8. Children attend with their families and have the opportunity to play games, participate in challenges, and above all, connect with like minds.

For the first hour of GEM, board games are available for children to play - either with their families, each other, or new friends. The "Emerald Zone" contains more challenging games, and is available for children in years 4-8.

During the second hour of GEM children engage in a "group challenge" activity. Children may need to work individually, in pairs or small groups to solve a challenge posed to the group. Sometimes speed or creativity will be highly prized, while other times precision and cooperation might be the key. Challenges vary in topic from GEM to GEM.

The topic for this particular GEM group challenge is "stable table"!

Some simple rules to help everyone enjoy their GEM experience:

- Only children in years K-8 may attend. The only exception to this is breastfed babes in arms. Please understand the need for this request, and find alternative arrangements for toddlers and preschoolers.

- Please bring a water bottle for your child, though cups and water will be made available.

- We encourage children to eat before they attend GEM. Tea/coffee and biscuits are provided for attending adults, however it is best if children eat before they come as food is not permitted near the board games.

- Please register ALL children attending this event.

- Please also note that GEM is not a "drop-off" event - children remain under the supervision of their parents at all times. Supervising adults attend free with paying children.

- Prices listed below are per child, with discounts for multiple children in a family, and with current financial members receiving a further discounted rate. Every child attending must have a ticket. Please do book, as places are limited and entry at the door will only be available on the night if tickets have not sold out.

We look forward to seeing you at GEM!
