EXPLORACENTRE CHILDREN’S SCIENCE EXPO @ Exploracentre
Aug 19 @ 10:00 am – Sep 12 @ 6:00 pm
EXPLORACENTRE CHILDREN'S SCIENCE EXPO @ Exploracentre

Fabriq’Expo is half-way between an industrial laboratory and DIY workshop for children – aged 5 and over.

Practical interactive science experiences are used to give an introduction to the world of engineering. 

Interactive games, experiences and experiments – for example constructing a mini-bridge following real-world examples or working out how to build an intricate, working marble run with various objects, as well as digital experiences.

The games illustrate different themes of engineering – such as an introduction to robotics and programming, understanding how things work by taking them apart, the constraints when building something, principles of chain reactions, observing and analysing different materials, mechanical systems and more…

We spent 2 hours at the exposition and had loads of mummy and child interactive fun together.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Read our review by Max (10) here.
