This workshop will playfully explore themes around city planning that is inclusive for all yet allows us to think critically about transport in the city. By using a variety of loose parts we will create a model of Coventry according to the dreams of the children. Loose parts can include – recycleable materials such as cardboard and bottle tops, and reusables such as lego and snap circuits, as well as natural material such as clay, wood pieces, leaves, flowers, pebbles etc.

As part of this 3-hour workshop, all participating children will receive lunch, served from our museum café, Esquires. Please let any food allergies be known at the time of booking. Parents are not required to stay for the duration of this workshop, but are welcome too, should they wish to.

We have HAF spaces available at this MicLab workshop. HAF is the Holiday and Activities Food Programme, from Coventry City Council. If your child receives free school meals and lives in Coventry, they should be eligible. For further information and to book any of the above activities, free of charge and with a pre-packed lunch provided for your child too, please visit: www.coventry.gov.uk/HAF
