Calling all budding young inventors and creatively inclined adults, get along to MOTAT’s January Holiday Experience ‘Invent and Play’ for a tremendously technological time!

As part of the exciting Holiday Experience, MOTAT is inviting visitors to create marvellous mechanisms using K’Nex, where creative construction toys and an impressive working display will have kids captivated for hours on end.

They will also get the chance to ‘Make ‘n’ Take’ their own MOTAT mementoes, drafting a blueprint of their own invention and checking out real blueprints from other projects! What’s more, kids will be encouraged to make a piece of kaleidoscope art work of their very own to take home using a salad spinner!

MOTAT’s January Holiday Experience ‘Invent and Play’ will be complemented by MOTAT’s newest travelling exhibition ‘Imagination Factory.’ All the way from Australia’s National Science and Technology Centre ‘Questacon,’ the fascinating ‘Imagination Factory’ exhibition explores basic mechanisms and uncovers how they can be used to create ingenious inventions.

The January Holiday Experience is running until from 3 January to 3 February 2013, so be sure to check it out and ‘Invent and Play’!
