Description

Head to Coventry Transport Museum for this Made in Coventry Lab, and write computer programs to draw out shapes and create a pattern inspired by Coventry.

MicLab - Stitch in Time | Coventry Transport Museum

Develop storytelling techniques, alongside character building, filming and recording voiceovers.

Head to Coventry Transport Museum for this MicLab workshop (Made in Coventry Lab) with the expert team from the Warwickshire Manufacturing Group from University of Warwick for this unique engineering and creative workshop. Through a series of exercises, children learn to write computer programs to draw out shapes, applying their knowledge of geometry and measurement. Then they create a pattern based on their own design inspired by Coventry, adapting it to take advantage of the greater intricacy which can be achieved by the embroidery machine.

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
