In our Irvine Linthouse Building, put on the welders mask, the riveter’s bunnet and pick up the riveting gun. Now, imagine holding it for 8 hours every day! Try and place the rivets into the slots using the gloves provided. Not as easy as it looks.
In our Irvine Linthouse Building, there's a pirate ship where children can use items from the dressing-up box and become pirates, or for smaller children, there is a ballpool. Also close by is a boating pond who will interest all of us who are young at heart. You can use one of the readymade foam boats or purchase one to make yourself.
Interactive game, where children can build their own puffer by selecting various options. At the end of the game, the puffer will steam across the screen, and give a score out of 10. Can you build the Puffer so that it sails from one end of the screen to the other?
On our Dumbarton Scraping Platform, kids love getting involved in this practice of physically scraping the excess wax from the model hull and to shape it, thus making it more streamlined for the water. Exactly as what would have happened many years ago.
Water + children = fun! In our Dumbarton Propellor Workshop, test different hull designs in our mini experiment tank with its own wave making machine. Children can watch their boat progress down the tank with the help of the wave machine.
