Engaging Young Minds Whilst Heading For The Stars
MAKEFEST 2019 success story
On Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th of May 2019 the Science and Industry Museum hosted their annual MAKER fare once again. Kids in Space were our usual huge attraction entertaining and educating hundreds of mums, dads and kids who visited us across the two days.
Rocket Racing – was a unique activity whereby young people were encouraged to customise the rockets they were given, prior to attaching it to a balloon to race a friend, brother or sister. Everybody seemed to enjoy this activity that showcased one of Issac Newton’s laws of motion.
Buggy Treking – involved winding up a clockwork car and trying your luck at manipulating it carefully across a Moon landscape replica along a designated path.
Drone Landing – Roger flew the drone through a few circuits, randomly landing it on the Moonscape. If you guessed correctly where it might land you won a prize. However, everybody went home with something.
