This School Holidays!
Explore the technology behind some of the iconic designs of Da Vinci, currently on display in the Discovery Centre in this workshop.
Students will get hands-on to create interactive moving masterpieces. Turn cogs, spin wheels and move levers to create a customised machine. Take them home to show off to friends! These machines will introduce students to the function of cams, an important part of many common mechanisms used in our everyday life. We will explore how simple shapes can turn into elaborate movements to make incredible interactive art pieces that rotate, wave, or even dance.
Workshop sessions run for 90 minutes for high-ability students and those seeking extension in Grades 3-6. Participation is FREE for Victorian Government school students and will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays (3pm to 4:30pm) through the Term 1 school holidays at Discovery. Bookings via Eventbrite are essential. Use your child’s teachers’ email address to secure a spot.
Parents are welcome to stay for the class.
