What we'll do
Do you like building things? Become a research and development engineer for the day. Be curious, see how things work and how you can make them better. Strong bridges - Can you build a bridge that supports 1, 2 or 3 kilos in weight? Test out your idea and see how much load it can take before it collapses. Rocket cars - Build an air powered rocket car using K’nex. Test it and make modifications to improve its performance. Race it on our track to see how far it will travel in a straight line. You can book for the morning, afternoon or both sessions.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.
