We know from experience that all mums, dads, uncles, aunties, older siblings, grandparents, carers are perfectly qualified for this role as no previous engineering experience is needed (they are indeed very useful and really, really good at handing you tools)

Here is what we offer:

  • A safe and relaxed space.  
  • Engineering Skills! You will use real tools to take apart real things. So, you will build up your engineering skills no matter what.
  • Permission to destroy! We let you break things AND you will not be told off*.  
  • Fun! We are prepared to throw a surprise maker challenge at you where you get to take your creation home if you want to.
  • Expertise! Our amazing experts from the Learning Team will encourage you throughout. They are experts in playful engineering. That means they are curious, they persevere, are imaginative, love solving problems and teamwork. They will happily offer their expertise and support you when needed.

*Please note Coventry Transport Museum take no responsibility for the inspiration we evoke in your children to destroy and create their own inventions with your household gadgets.
