BUILDING & MAKING:
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.
MISSIONS RUNNING IN 2018
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…
In this week-long mission, you will learn the basics of engineering by designing, building and testing pedal-powered go-karts in small teams. The week will end with some exciting driving challenges!
“IF I HAD A WORLD OF MY OWN, EVERYTHING WOULD BE NONSENSE. NOTHING WOULD BE WHAT IT IS, BECAUSE EVERYTHING WOULD BE WHAT IT ISN'T. ” THE MAD HATTER
On this mission, we’re tumbling down a rabbit hole to the fantastically mad and enchanting world that is Wonderland! Rabbits appear and disappear. Caterpillars turn into Cheshire cats, eating cake makes you a giant, tears turn into seas, trees have secret doors, croquet sets are made of flamingos and hedgehogs, and playing cards come in full body armour….
“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
