Toying With Science – Spaghetti Towers

Brighton Toy and Model Museum is toying with science (again)!

During October Half term we’ll be hosting another chance to take part in our popular afternoon event between 14:00 and 16:00 where we will be looking at the science behind some of our toys and seeing how we can apply those principals to finding solutions to other challenges.
If you’re interested in construction, physics, maths, energy conversion or engineering, then why not come along to see what we’re playing at?

On October 26th we’ll be building spaghetti towers, researching the engineering principals behind construction and seeing how they relate to some of our famous constructional toys.

Like Meccano, building towers out of spaghetti and marshmallows is a great way to encourage children to think like engineers.
Come and test the strengths and weaknesses of different shapes to see who can build the tallest, strongest structure!

The sessions are aimed at children between the ages of 7 and 11 and each event comes at no additional cost other than regular admission, but booking is required. To book a place, just pop in to the foyer next time you’re passing or give us a ring on 01273 749494
