The Science Tent will have hands-on, interactive science from Primary Engineer Fluid Power Challenge – build a fluid power operated crane and work as a team to compete against others to move the most blocks, (kids you might have to explain to your parents!) Brickies building challenges and Programming Bee Bops, (hand size programable ladybirds) and more with Creation Station.
