Arduino Coding Workshop
Interested in coding and robotics? Explore how robotics work and learn how to code an Arduino with these fun hands on workshops.
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. Over the two hands-on sessions, learn to mark and measure as well as how to use a fret saw, sanders, spoke shaves and a variety of other tools under adult supervision.

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.
Each session will involve fun, hands-on experiments to inspire new inventions. Suitable for 9-13 year olds, limited to 12 children.
