Item Qty To Buy Price
Accompanying Adult £12.00
Workshop Participant £35.00

Description :

Come and build yourself a bug-shaped mini robot! This one's always looking for light and can't help crawling towards it!

No electronics experience is required although you will need a steady hand to assemble the components and use our tools, including a soldering iron.

This is a great workshop aimed at children aged 11 years and older

This workshop session is priced at £35 per participant and includes the cost of the kit and entry to the museum all day! For participants under the age of 14, we require an accompanying adult to attend the workshop alongside them. Accompanying adult tickets can be purchased for the normal museum entry price of £12 and are valid all day. 

Date: Friday 23rd August 2024
Time: 11 am – 1:30 pm

This workshop will start promptly at 11 am, so please arrive at least 15 minutes early.

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

Although the event booking is for a specific time, entry to the Centre is permitted all day. The Centre is open from 10am.

Snacks will be available from our Pac-Lunch Shop. There's plenty of seating for parents :)

Spaces for these exciting hands-on events are limited, 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.

Cancellations: We are unable to provide refunds for cancellations in the 14 days prior to the workshop. This is because we will have purchased the kits. However, you are still welcome to collect your kit from the museum during our normal opening hours.

Remember - All proceeds go to support our Computing Museum!
