BUILD & MAKe:
Can you imagine building your own Go Kart and racing it or designing and making a proper lair for you and your friends to chill in? What about inventing and engineering your own flying machine? The Hive's Makers Lab makes all this possible. Bringing together design, architecture, engineering and construction skills, these missions are perfect for children who just love being in the workshop, dreaming up structures, building and tinkering.
These missions are designed like REAL professional projects AND ARE ideal for older children. From engineers to DESIGNERS, ARCHITECTS TO wood workers, children get the chance to work with true professionals in a CHALLENGING BUT nurturing environment.
“ONCE YOU HAVE TASTED FLIGHT YOU WILL WALK THE EARTH WITH YOUR EYES TURNED SKYWARDS, FOR THERE YOU HAVE BEEN AND THERE YOU WILL LONG TO RETURN” - LEONARDO DA VINCI
The Hive’s first flying mission! Inspired by Leonardo’s amazing machines, this week-long project is all about INVENTION. Your challenge: dream up, design and build a machine that can fly long enough for you to win Gold at our inaugural Air Show!
IN 2017, THE HIVE’S OPEN-AIR THEATRE WILL PRODUCE ITS FIRST PLAY: PUCK’S PRANK. AND WE NEED YOU!
A really important part of a live performance happens behind the scenes. There is a set to design and construct, a stage to build, scenery to create, props to research and make, costumes to sketch, cut and sew, fittings to organise, masks to produce, make-up to apply, sounds to find, lights to operate, background videos to shoot, music to compose and production meetings to attend! This is how make-believe happens:)
YOUR CHALLENGE? DESIGN AND BUILD A FULLY FUNCTIONING CAMOUFLAGED DEN FOR YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS IN A WEEK!
Working with a professional designer-maker and sculptor, you will learn how professionals design, build and test to create the most amazing lair! Your mission will culminate with a final challenge: putting your design and making skills to the test by building a giant swing for your team!
HAVE YOU EVER DRIVEN A GO KART? DO YOU KNOW HOW THEY’RE BUILT? JOIN US ON THIS CHALLENGING BUT FUN MISSION TO FIND OUT…
