Event description

Description

For the very first time, TooniSparx brings together the hands-on STEM and robotics of MiniSparx and the cartooning and stop-motion creativity of ToonWorld into the two exciting workshop events!

Taking place within the beautifully restored Newcastle Station event space, TooniSparx will be running two themed school holiday workshops that will have kids engaging in everything awesome that STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) can be!

Not only will our young sparky engineers be planning and constructing robots and automated creatures - they’ll be animating them too! Our friends at ToonWorld will work alongside our MiniSparx educators to help guide the kids through the processes of cartooning and stop-motion film which will bring even more life into each participants’ sparky robo-inventions!

Wednesday, 23rd January - TooniSparx: Animated Creatures

Just as the name suggests, TooniSparx: Animated Creatures invites kids aged 7-14 years to bring life to real circuitry cyborg creatures through both beginner engineering and animation practices.

Through the creative possibilities of plasticine and animation software, TooniSparkers will handcraft clay creatures that will come to life through the wonders of stop-motion, claymation practices. Then, using our MiniSparx LittleBits kits, children will gain an understanding of how electronics work and gain knowledge in how to put together basic robotic androids. From planning, construction, and testing, these bots will be buzzing into reality at every stage of the mini engineers’ project.


There’s something for every child when sci-fi creatures are concerned and now thanks to TooniSparx, every child can put on both their engineering and filmmaking hat in the name of futuristic invention!
