Family Museum Engineers Play Days | Coventry Transport Museum

Family Museum Engineers are play sessions designed for the whole family. Providing opportunities to explore an open-ended play environment using unique resources that encourage engineering skills, problem-solving, imagination and, of course, quality family fun!

  • Timetable: One Saturday a month | 10:30am - 3pm
  • Venue: Coventry Transport Museum, Millennium Place, Hales Street, Coventry, CV1 1JD
  • Price: FREE with admission
  • Age suitability: suitable for all ages
  • Booking: no need to book, just drop in!

The sessions are linked to themes and objects within the collections and take place directly in the gallery spaces, giving your children (and the adults too) experiences of museum environments through a very playful approach. Each month family museum engineers will get hands-on with play items that differ slightly each time, opening up varied experiences each time you visit. 

Not sure what STEM is? Don’t worry, you don’t really need to know what it is to enjoy and embrace these activities. That’s what are skilled and talented Learning Team are here for. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. This can sound a little scary, especially when you have young children, but STEM based play is important for children to develop skills and knowledge that they will use at school and into their adulthood too. Exposure to any play that encourages children to figure things out, how things work and to be creative is STEM, and as you become more familiar with our sessions, you will quickly realise that STEM is all around us, all the time, and you will have been supporting your children with this already, perhaps without even realising it.
