Make Space Racers at Enginuity

Summer Holidays: Saturday 21st July - Sunday 2nd September

Join a drop-in workshop to design and make your own Space Racers using simple craft materials at Enginuity, near Ironbridge, Shropshire during the summer school holidays between Saturday, 21st July and Sunday, 2nd September. Afterwards test your Space Racer over Enginuity’s ‘Martian terrain’ and see how it competes against other models. The daily sessions will run from 10.30am until 3.45pm and cost £2.50 per Space Racer for materials plus admission.

You can also watch an interactive show about the wonders of space and play with the huge hands-on exhibits at the Enginuity design and technology centre to discover how everyday things work. Find out how to control a ‘river’ to generate electricity, pull a 10 ton locomotive, build an earthquake-proof tower and challenge a robot.

Open 10am to 5pm Enginuity is one of the Ironbridge Gorge Museums. A great value Annual Passport Ticket allowing entry into all ten museums, valid for twelve months and unlimited return visits, costs £23.25 per adult, £18.75 for the 60 plus, £15.25 for students and children and £64 for a family of two adults and all their children aged up to 18 years in full time education (terms and conditions apply); under 5s free. Activities and workshops vary day-to-day and some carry an extra charge in addition to the museum admission fee. Individual museum entry tickets are also available.
