Windmills, solar panels and hand generators; these school holidays, MOTAT is getting energised and turning up the power in its ‘ON’ Holiday Experience.
Visitors to MOTAT will step into a thrilling world of energy, learning that power can come from a range of surprising and mindboggling sources.
Kids can look forward to getting hands-on with a make and take windmill workshop, fascinating energy displays and a competition trail where you need to work as a team to solve the mystery word. They’ll also love exploring the Power Station that explains the types of energy we use in New Zealand and how they are created.
Another highlight at MOTAT’s ‘ON’ Holiday Experience is the Fonterra Science Roadshow, where visitors of all ages can have a hands-on experience with science and technology.
These school holidays, the Fonterra Science Roadshow is offering more exhibits than ever before to further develop MOTAT’s ‘ON’ themes of energy. There will be over 70 interactive exhibits, such as a sonar sound energy system, bubbling liquid and laser beams.
The Fonterra Science Roadshow will also be presenting three brand new live science shows every hour on the hour throughout the ‘ON’ Holiday Experience, with crafty experiments about physical and chemical changes and the aspects of the world we can’t see.
MOTAT visitors can enjoy the ‘ON’ Holiday Experience as part of their general admission fee to MOTAT. More details about MOTAT or the Fonterra Science Roadshow can be found at the website or www.roadshow.org.nz.
