Mr Shaha’s Marvellous Machines

Join us online to meet children’s author, Alom Shaha, as he talks about his fabulous book – plus, everyone can join in and have a go! Follow the simple steps to build toys which fly, spin, whizz, and pop. To encourage recycling and re-use, everything in the book is made from household items you’ve probably got lying around. At the heart of the book is the idea that we don’t have to be buying new, instead we can make and learn about engineering and science at the same time.
Discover the joy of making, and develop your creativity, scientific thinking, problem solving, and practical skills with Mr Shaha’s Marvellous Machines. This event is in association with the Nottingham Festival of Science and Curiosity – you can also meet the team on Sunday at Newark Castle where they will be making things from the books!

Recommended Ages: 5-12 years and their grown ups
