Discover the science behind bridge construction these school holidays at Scienceworks. With a free hands-on bridge building activity, an engaging amphitheatre show about the science of structures and a construction-themed play area for younger visitors, this holiday program has something for every budding engineer!
ACTIVITIESBridge Building Activity Try our bridge building challenge in our free daily activity, and construct a bridge model using different craft materials. Test its strength and stability in different ground sediments and discover how engineers solve construction problems in everyday life. Suitable for ages 6+. Little Kids Construction Play Area Test your knowledge as a young engineer by experimenting with our construction play equipment. Dress up as an engineer in personal protective equipment as you explore, play and build! Suitable for ages 5 and below.
SHOWSAmphitheatre Show Discover more about bridge engineering in our free amphitheatre show! Come to terms with concepts such as force, tension and compression to explore the geometry of bridges and the science of building materials. Suitable for all ages. Lightning Room Show - Bolt from the Blue Join us for a show that explores what we know - and what we don't - about this spectacular force of nature. Featuring high-voltage demonstrations, we'll take you deep inside a storm cloud and find out what happens when lightning strikes.
