Can workshop participants keep what they make in the workshop?
In most workshops participants do not take home what they make. The description of the workshop will indicate if anything made is kept by participants, eg. in the Brushbot Racers workshop participants keep the Brushbot kit they make in the workshop. The cost of these materials is included in the workshop cost.
Do parents stay with their children during workshops or drop them off and come back to pick them up?
Most parents drop off their child and return at the end of the workshop. Parents are welcome to stay if they wish. We have a lounge area available for parents in the same building as the workshops. Parents are also welcome to go into their child’s workshop to see what they are doing.
Can I park in the onsite car park?
Yes. Their is ample parking available inside the school grounds.
Does my child need to bring any food or drink with them?
Children are encouraged to bring a water bottle with them. If your child will be on site for more than 2 hours (eg. during Holiday Workshops) please also provide them with a snack / lunch as appropriate. Please do not send any peanut products. If your child is thirsty and doesn’t have a drink bottle we will certainly give them a drink of water as required.
