Step into Summer Holiday Fun at STEAM!

There's plenty of action and exploration to be had at STEAM this summer! Children will love to follow our fun family trails, take part in a special drop-in activity session or create their own unique journey through our story-telling displays.

Whatever your age, there really is something for everyone at STEAM. 

We invite you to climb aboard and drive the train simulator, walk underneath 80 tonnes of metal and even change the signals in our authentic GWR Signal Box!

Take a look at what's on offer this Summer Holiday...

Kids for a Quid 

STEAM

Meccano Challenge Week

Swindon

Drop in on 6, 7 and 8 August
10am – 12.30pm
1 – 3pm

Could you be a 21st century Brunel? Design and build the transport system of the future!

Using junior Meccano, children will be encouraged to learn STEM skills while having fun. They will use unique metal and plastic parts to build land based and flying models. Brunel had steel and steam; we have electricity and robots. Come and model your ideas!

Ideal for children 7 to 12 years old. All children need to be accompanied and supervised by a responsible adult over the age of 18.

The activity is not suitable for children under 5, as Meccano relies on small nuts and bolts to join it together. Children between 5 and 7 could take part with adult supervision.

Included with Museum admission and STEAM Season Tickets.

 

Explorer Dome: The Wonder of Space

STEAM

15 August

£5.50 per person - bookable in advance. Please click here for full details.
