Thinktank Birmingham Science Museum Celebrate’s 10th Birthday

Thinktank is 10! And throughout 2011 the museum will be celebrating its birthday with a whole host of fun events and activities. From explosive science demonstrations to Wallace and Gromit inspired invention sessions, Thinktank has a whole lot of birthday treats in store.

Weekends and school holidays, there is The Big Bang Family Science Show. The only way to celebrate a birthday at Thinktank is with a good dose of science and a sprinkling of danger! Visitors can vote to see a big science demonstration, chosen from our very best demonstrations over the past 10 years.

There’s also the Animation Workshop where kids can bring objects and models to life through the science of stop frame animation. Plus, inspired by Wallace’s love of inventing, the NEW Wallace and Gromit Invention Sessions which will encourage and inspire the secret inventor inside all of us, using kits developed by the BBC, in association with Aardman Animations.

For younger visitors there is Robot Rebuild Storytelling. Someone has stolen parts from Ivor the Inventor’s robot and the kids must help find them all and get him working again. In this interactive storytelling session, young children and their parents will learn more about five of our senses along the way.
