Encourage your pupils and their families to head to Enginuity for some interactive design and technology fun over the May Bank Holiday 2010.
News: Have your pupils seen and been inspired by the building challenges in the recent BBC TV series Toy Stories with Top Gear presenter James May? Here’s an opportunity to develop their interest in Design and Technology.
Now they've got the chance to go along over the May Bank Holiday weekend 2010 and get stuck in themselves at the Meccano show Meccanuity at Enginuity, the hands-on design and technology museum at Ironbridge Gorge.
Created by Telford and Ironbridge Meccano Society, Shropshire, the Meccanuity exhibition will host an impressive array of large and small working Meccano models in Enginuity's event space. Among the working models will be an display of famous bridges, including a three-metre Clifton Suspension Bridge, a two-metre Iron Bridge and a one-metre working replica of James May's giant Meccano Bridge over the Leeds and Liverpool Canal.
Mechanical fun will extend beyond the cranes, planes, robots and trains; people will also be competing to make the best Meccano long-jumping flea.
