Holiday Tech Club – Woodland Adventure (Ages 9-12) (22 April)
Environmental explorers go wild outdoors at our Holiday Tech Club this Easter. Code your own data sensing tool using a micro:bit, then make your own investigations in our woodland, meadow and ponds using your tool to take measurements. Record data from light, sound, temperature or moisture levels and make your own discoveries – are there more bugs in wet places? Do more birds nest where it is warmer, or do you feel happier where it’s lighter? Design your own sensor, then run your experiments to find out answers to Big Questions!
Children must be accompanied by an adult (adult entrance free), as activities are designed for children and adults working together.
Your ticket includes entrance to the timed club session and access to the woodland and outdoor Water Lab. The Exploration Zone is closed.
For information on our terms and conditions visit here.
The Café will be open to visitors between 10am-4pm. We recommend ordering hot food before 12:30pm, to avoid disappointment. The decking and outdoor area will also be available for sitting and eating, in addition to the indoor café area.
The health and well-being of our visitors and staff is our highest priority.
