10 11Reaching for the Moon!Reaching for the Moon!Time: 10:00 - 12:00
A hand-on science workshop for 8-12 year olds, exploring the inventions which got us to the Moon and back. Reaching for the Moon! is a series of 20 STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) workshops inspired by all the research needed to get Apollo 11 and her crew to the Moon and back again, 50 years ago this year. Each workshop, aimed at 8-12 year olds, will feature different inventions and engineering solutions, a lot of creativity and fun. The sessions will be hands-on and inventive. You can book as many workshops as you like (booking for each workshop opens 6 weeks ahead of the given date). Each workshop is different, even the two on the same day. So altogether there will be 20 different workshops. Kids can attend as many or as few as they like. They don't need to have attended any earlier workshop in the programme to be able to enjoy the later workshops. NB If you book your child onto two workshops on the same day, you are responsible for your child between the two workshops (12-1.30). We've teamed up with amazing science educators Femtinos thanks to a generous grant from The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). Places on these workshops must be booked (booking open 6 weeks before each workshop) and you can book your tickets here: https://bookwhen.com/foliosuttoncoldfield Please note: For the first time we a charging a small fee for these events. This isn't to make money, but rather a mechanism to try to ensure everyone who books a place, then attends; each workshop only has 15 places. If, however, the small fee is a barrier to your children attending, please message us and we will find a solution. FOLIO is committed to making sure that all our events are accessible by all.
