Friday 9th January 2015

14:00 - 16:00

Location : Booked course, pre-registration required. Confirmed upon booking.

We'd like to share a range of simple activities that we offer schools and Science Clubs in the North of England. We offer a number of practical sessions that have as their basis 'Things that Move'. Some are our own contraptions - others are value for money commercial kits. In our session participants will make two models and take two others home - to make at their leisure. Looking for ideas to get you on the move - in lessons or clubs we have the start point to move you forward.
