Then I told them of the hand of my God which was good upon me; And they said, Let us rise up and build. So they strengthened their hands for this good work.
Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may tell it to the generation following

K’nex workshops
One of the most amazing, fun, educational resources that we have enjoyed using is K’nex - where creativity clicks. The children are immersed in hands-on inquiry and open-ended exploration. The path to learning is open ended within constraints. Having built up a substantial collection of the various bits of kit we are in a position to be able to offer workshops for groups up to about twenty. Starting with simple models to be built by following logical flow chart instructions, the children can progress to programming basic on and off functions using control technology on the laptops that we provide. In follow up sessions this can be developed to more complex models to be built incorporating the use of motors and sensors. The children will develop skills in teamwork, following instructions, logic and problem solving. STEAM activities (Science, Technology. Engineering, Art and Maths) develop a set of thinking, reasoning, teamwork, investigative, and creative skills that students can use in all areas of their lives. We can tailor workshops to cater for KS1 to KS4 and are happy to work with mixed age groups, with parental assistance. The active part of the sessions is usually about three hours but this can be tailored to suit your requirements. Costs are £5 per first child and then £1 per additional child in each family.
We will consider venues within a 90 minute drive … please contact us on vcso@cero.org.uk for further discussions.
