Invent and Create Day at Huddersfield Library
Young people across Kirklees are being encouraged to get involved with science, thanks to a fun day of activities at the Huddersfield Library on Saturday 18 March 2017.
Who’s the event aimed at?
The day is aimed at families with children aged 7 to 14, and is set to be a fantastically-fun day out with free science activities and experiments taking place throughout the day.
Why are we running the event?
The event is part of British Science week 2017 (10 – 19 March) – a national celebration of the best of British: Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
Kirklees Libraries Invent and Create Day is being held in partnership with the University of Huddersfield, who will be getting involved by offering a range of chemistry and electronics activities.
What activities will there be?
There are going to be over 13 different things to see and do, from learning how to light up drawings with electric circuits, to the chance to build a GIANT den!
There’s also sessions where our young scientists can make everything from flip books, to flying fish windsocks – so there’s plenty to keep everyone engaged.
The Microbit Foundation and Code Clubs will also be running a computer coding workshop and offering the chance to learn how to make and learn more about robots.
Not only do we have all these activities and experiments waiting for you to have a go with, but our friends at the West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service will also be there to show people how a fire engine works – that’s right, a fire engine AND a firefighter will be there too.
Want to get involved?
The event is FREE to attend and takes place between 11am and 3pm on Saturday 18 March 2017 at the Huddersfield Library.
The event is expected to be popular, so anyone interested in attending is being asked to register their interest in attending on Eventbrite.
