Holographic Machines Masterclass + Mega Maker Lab entry

17th August 2019, 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

You’re invited to… Holographic Machines Masterclass

Want to create a real life hologram? This is for you!

We’ll be creating holographic viewers. In this workshop, children will use upcycled plastic material to construct a special pyramid that when used with a smartphone can display the magic of a real life hologram.

The workshop involves making the viewer and experimenting with a range of holograms using smartphones from the Imagination Lab.

Please note that the viewers can be kept and taken home after the workshop, but the smartphones stay in the Lab.

When is Holographic Machines Masterclass?

This Masterclass is taking place on Saturday 17 August, 11am-12pm, 1-2pm and 3-4pm.

We have another Holographic Machines Masterclass on Saturday 31 August 2019, from 11am-12pm, 1-2pm and 3-4pm, Book here

How much is a Masterclass and what does it include?

A ticket is £25 and includes 1 hour masterclass for a child and an accompanying adult.

Accompanying adults need to stay on site throughout the masterclass and we recommend you join in the masterclass. A £25 ticket also includes entry to Mega Maker Lab for 1 adult and 1 child, which is in the main hall outside the Imagination Lab. Additional adults and children in the group that will not take part in the masterclass but want to explore Mega Maker Lab must buy a ticket. You can add additional entry tickets to Mega Maker Lab here, or you can purchase Mega Maker Lab tickets separately on the event page.

Who are masterclasses for?

Children aged 7-12 years and an accompanying adult.

The masterclasses are aimed at children, but an accompanying adult needs to be on site at all times as these are not drop-off events. Adults can also attend and enjoy the workshop too. The ticket includes entry into Mega Maker Lab which is an experience designed for adults and children to enjoy together.

Can I attend a masterclass without visiting Mega Maker Lab?

The masterclasses are an additional experience as part of the Mega Maker Lab and by booking a space at a Masterclass you get entry to Mega Maker Lab for one child and one adult included. It is not possible to attend a Masterclass without also entering the Mega Maker Lab, these tickets are combined.

When can I go into Mega Maker Lab?

You can enter Mega Maker Lab anytime between 10am-5pm on the day your masterclass is booked, so that’s before or after your Masterclass time. Entry with a £25 ticket is for 1 adult and 1 child. Any additional adults or children in the group not attending the masterclass must buy tickets separately.
