Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

Description :

Get into the festive spirit and come and build your very own 3D digital Christmas Tree!

We'll be turning our Hauser Studio into an Electronics Lab for this workshop. We'll have soldering stations set-up and our in-house electronics experts will help you assemble, solder and test your Christmas Tree ready to take home with you.

Ideal for budding electronics engineers or anyone interested in learning to solder, this little ~100mm high Christmas Tree contains 36 alternately flashing RGB LEDs and requires DC 4.5 - 5V to run. You can either power this up with 3 AA batteries or a USB cable. 

We have all the tools required to make it, just come along and enjoy the creativity of making your own electronic circuit. Perhaps give it as a Christmas present or put it on display in your bedroom!

No electronics experience is required although you will need a steady hand. 

This is a great workshop aimed at children aged from twelve upwards. All under 14's must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Spaces are limited for this hands-on session, so booking is required to ensure your place.

Payment is taken by PayPal immediately. Please print a copy of the receipt that is displayed at the end of the payment process and bring it with you as your e-ticket.

This workshop session is priced at £26.00 per participant and includes the cost of the kit and entry to the museum!  Accompanying adults are charged our standard entry rate of £9.

Date : 7 December 2019
Time : 1 - 5pm

Please note: Whilst we'll make every effort to help ensure your Christmas Tree works, careful assembly and soldering is required and we cannot be held responsible for any non-working trees due to poor assembly.
