Architecture Workshops are a series of free drop-in sessions that will commence at the beginning of December. These workshops are aimed at families – it’s all about having fun and learning together.

Sunday 01 December – Toothpick and Marshmallow Challenge

Our first workshop is the famous Toothpick and Marshmallow challenge where families are encouraged to work in collaboration in order to build a structure.

Whether you are going for the tallest structure, or the longest, or why not go for the most complex, you are the architects and you, as a family, will set up the goal.

The goal of this challenge is not only to explore physics and maths, but most importantly is to work together as a family.

Come join us and let’s have some fun together.

Sunday 15 December – Straws and Balloons

This workshop is all about having fun while learning about structure and physics. You will be building a structure made out of paper straws that will be represented as an outer shell. Then you will place some balloons inside because it’s fun! And by doing this we will introduce a second layer of construction, as if the building was a living piece and needed a body.

We will here explore concepts like shell/inner shell, in/out, structure/body.

 Sunday 29 December – Hula Hoop and Strings 

Hula Hoops and Strings is all about teamwork, participants will get together in one big group and build a structure made of… you guessed it, hula hoops and strings, isn’t that cool?

So come and join us and let’s create a skyscraper or an igloo or why not fierce a dragon!
