The Heritage Motor Centre is inviting families to enjoy a week of ‘Auto Science Live’ during the February half term. The event, which runs from the 15 – 23 February, features a range of free activities bringing automotive engineering and the science behind it to life. Included are family story-telling tours as well as drop in sessions and workshops to inspire children of all ages. Every day children can get ‘hands-on’ and test their powers of observation with the Auto Science Trail.
Monday: ‘Mad Science’ is brought to life on the Monday at 11am and 1pm for a 45 minute show full of fun, interactive demonstrations and hands on activities.
Tuesday: Back by popular demand, ‘Lego Technics’ takes place on the Tuesday from 10:30am – 3pm when children can design, build and test their own Lego Technic machines. They can then race them along the ‘Heritage Track’ with the fastest car of the day winning the title ‘Champion Designer’ as well as a prize.
Wednesdays: Visitors up for a challenge can take part in Wheelie Lego on the Wednesday from 10:30am – 3pm. Children can become a HMC engineering apprentice for the day and try and engineer a Lego car to come down the ramp and travel as far as possible.
Thursday: ‘Auto Crafty’ takes place on the Thursday with some ‘hands on’ craft activities from 10:30am – 3pm.
Friday: To round off the week visitors can enjoy a fast and furious hour setting their lap time on the fun-sized Scalextrix race track with Mighty Fast Friday from 10:30pm – 3pm.
