Magnificent Women and their Flying Machines
Young People’s Summer Workshops
Would you like to create and build an authentic wing structure? Then this is the workshop for you. You’ll look at the the pioneering work of women engineers over the last century and explore the science of wing design and flight mechanics before having a go at building an aircraft wing!
This interactive, hands-on workshop based on the build of aircraft wings has been devised by Women’s Engineering Society.
Suitable for young people age 10 – 16 years
In association with Women’s Engineering Society and Heritage Learning Services
Leave your children at one of our morning workshops to take part in our fun, interactive, hands-on and educational workshops, while you enjoy the Da Vinci Engineered exhibition, have coffee in Zebedee’s Yard, or just go shopping!
Each week there will be a different, amazing subject for children to explore in a creative and memorable way. Amy Johnson and Leonardo da Vinci will be our inspirations as children discover some of the wonders of science, art and engineering in these creative sessions. The workshops are run by local educational, industry and engineering specialists including Heritage Learning Services, ArtLink Community Arts Centre, and Humber Engineering Training Association.
Monday 1 – Saturday 6 August
10.00am – 12.00pm, daily
