11.00am Built for Speed
How do we build machines? What makes them work and what makes them go fast? Why are some machines faster than others and how do we build machines for speed?
Today, we will be looking at how machines work and why some are faster than others. You can build your very own machine out of recycled materials.
2.30pm All Charged Up
Opposites attract – that’s true even at the tiniest level. Find out how that important in creating that little spark when you touch a metal object, and what that’s got to do with lightening.
Make something a little different with our activities today!

Let us show you how to transform a pile of rubbish into a fun toy car, and find out a bit about recycling along the way.
4.00pm See the Cogs Turning
Think about what a machine is, what forces are involved and what powers it and use all that information to make a simple machine from just a few bit of cardboard and some metal pins.
