Workshop Summary

Tyne and Wear has a large transport system including bus network, metro and an international airport. In this session students will learn about how transport has changed over time by exploring the galleries of the Discovery Museum. The Children will create a transport timeline, investigate materials and have the opportunity to do observational drawing in the gallery. The class will then have the opportunity to consider which materials would be the most suitable for making an air powered vehicle in a group making challenge.      

* some of the content between Rocket Car Racers, Stephenson's Rocket and Transport are similar. We don't recommend that groups book both of these sessions.
