Inspiring Inventors

10th August, 10.30am – 12.30pm, Coventry Transport Museum, 7-16 years

Your little ones will tinker with real tools and discover the technology hidden inside gadgets as they take them apart and put them back together in their own unique way. In this relaxed workshop you will feed your curiosity, creativity and enjoy making something new from old, unused, everyday objects. Enjoy being an explorer, engineer and inventor. Challenge yourself with the tricky bits when taking apart an everyday object, figure out how it works and then let your imagination run wild as you become an inventor extraordinaire.
