Events and Activites
Saturday Science Club: Roving Robots
Over the two hands-on sessions, learn to build your very own robotic line-following vehicle…
Build an analogue robot that uses line-detecting technology to move swiftly along a marked path. On the way you will learn about electronics, motors and circuitry. You will get to use a soldering iron, wire up the robot and even get the chance to decorate your robot in your own style.
Saturday morning workshops suitable for 10-16 year olds, limited numbers, so book early to avoid missing out!
1st & 8th February 10:30am - 1:00pm

Buzz Wire Hack
Learn to hack a simple Buzz Wire game using a BBC Micro:bit. On the way you will learn about electronics and coding. You will get to use a soldering iron, make a transistor amplifier, and wire up the inputs and outputs of the Micro:bit. You will develop your code to react to inputs, display "lives" and play tunes and sound effects.
Discover the skills used by experts to build the aircraft of the past at Brooklands and build your very own mini wooden propeller with an inserted clock to take home and display.
Workshop lead by David Free, presenter of the TV show “The Great British Woodshop” with over 40 years of woodwork experience.
Build it at Brooklands
These workshops use Brooklands as a backdrop to discover more about some of the pioneers of the 20th Century and the science behind what they built. We will be building and testing structures inspired by the Vickers Wellington and Members Bridge as well as exploring simple machines and the important role they play in construction.
