Under 8’s Moon Buggies


Join the space crew engineering team to design and build a space buggy to send to the Moon. Use your imagination to create a super all-terrain vehicle. How many wheels will it have? Can it drill for rocks, transport heavy goods or have the ability to fly? You decide in this fun building workshop!

The session uses Lego Duplo which cannot be taken from the room but bring your cameras to capture your wonderful creation.

Get creative with one of our exciting Space themed arts activities that you can take home. The activity changes daily but is suitable for all ages and is a great way to be creative at the end of the day.
