Get creative at Enginuity, near Ironbridge during the Easter school holidays and use your imagination to create your own spring loaded creatures from brightly coloured craft materials. You can then challenge your friends and family to see whose creation can ‘jump’ the furthest and hit a target. You can also take your creature home with you.
The drop-in hands-on workshops will take place daily from 13 until 28 April, 10.30am - 3.30pm and are included in the museum entrance fee.
Afterwards play with the huge interactive exhibits at Enginuity; generate electricity using dams, build your own earthquake proof tower and see who can build the strongest bridge. You can also try and solve the free puzzles on the demonstration desk or see if you can make the paper helicopters fly.
