Half Term Fun at Spaceport

19th February 2013

Categories: News

Could your idea be the next big thing?

On Friday 22 and Saturday 23 February, Spaceport and The Intellectual Property Office (IPO) are offering activity workshops, giving the unique opportunity for children to create their own lunar inventions, find out all about protecting their ideas and enter them in a national competition.

The fun workshops will include Badge Making - design a space logo for your badge and learn about Trade Marks, Galactic Gizmo - draw a space-age innovation linked to Patents, Design an Alien and find out about Design Rights or Create a Cracking Space Jingle by writing a limerick and learning about Copyright laws. All of the activities are linked to the IPO Cracking Ideas Competition and can be entered into the competition on the day - plus each child taking part will receive a notebook, chatterbox kit and bookmark.

And that’s not all! A visit to Spaceport offers an exciting journey through space, with six themed galleries featuring interactive hands-on exhibits and audio visual displays, plus a planetarium show in the 360 degree Dome Theatre and the ‘Wallace & Gromit in Space’ exhibition, as well as some fascinating factual information about the Moon, our Solar System and the history of space exploration.

The workshops, led by Nick Jenkins and Rachel Billson from the IPO, run between 10.30am and 4pm on each of the two days, there’s no extra cost to take part and no need to book, just come along and enjoy a day of invention!
