Have you ever solved a problem by inventing something useful?

MOTAT’S September Holiday Experience will help you do just that! Invention Nation will guide kids through the five stages of inventing; from the Idea, Design, Prototype, Testing, to Refining.

Find information about famous Kiwi inventors, our latest Exhibition - Welcome to the Machine - plus design your own contraption in your very own Invention Journal! Each activity will have your brain buzzing and your creative juices flowing. Kids will get the chance to:

- Sort It: you’re starving but sand has gotten into your only food. What invention will best sort out your food from the sand?
- Bridge It: you’re stranded and need to get to the other side, but there’s no way across. Can you invent a bridge to get you there?
- Launch It: invent a launcher to fight through the targets!
- Grab It: there’s dangerous toxic acid. Grab it and move it out of harm's way.

Plus, using the classic tradition of the Rube Goldberg machine, help us build a massive marble moving machine! Construct your tile and then add it to the wall to expand the machine. Be sure to keep checking throughout the holidays to see how the machine is growing.

With plenty of challenges that will light up your imagination, MOTAT is the place to be these school holidays!
