Lego Inventioneers Day
October 29, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
A family fun day aimed at promoting STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) in a fun and interactive way. We hope the event will foster creativity and energize young minds in the fun and education that comes with creating and inventing.
Here are some of the activities happening throughout the day:
- The Tallest Tower – build a structure using a paper bag of materials (spaghetti, string and tape) to support a marshmallow.
- The Mathemagic of Kaleidoscopes – make a kaleidoscope to take home and explore geometry, symmetry and reflections. Children will need approximately 60 minutes to build a kaleidoscope at the event with the support of volunteers from Let’s Talk Science. Children 8 years and under will have an opportunity to colour or take-home a kaleidoscope page. Instruction pages will be provided for making a kaleidoscope at home using an empty Pringles Potato Chip container.
- Spin art
- Meccano & Lego models
Some of the activities include Robotics for everyone and mini LEGO challenges throughout the day!
