For a limited time in 2015 Joseph Herscher will be based in New Zealand at MOTAT, filming ‘Jiwi’s Machines’ – a comedy science web series which will be released later in the year. In ‘Jiwi’s Machines’ Joseph builds overly complicated contraptions with lots of moving parts that ultimately perform very simple tasks.

During his time at MOTAT, Joseph will be running limited edition workshops, where participants will work in small groups and be challenged to think creatively as they design, construct and test their own Rube Goldberg machine using a combination of levers, pulleys, gears, inclined planes, screws, wheels and axles made from everyday materials.

Don’t miss this limited opportunity to meet Joseph, build one of these amazing machines and get a hands-on learning experience of the 6 simple machine types.

These workshops are each 2.5 hours in duration and are ideal for children 8 years old and upwards (no prior experience is necessary).

Numbers are limited to 30 participants per session and bookings are essential through the MOTAT website.
