Mornings – encore!MIM-Mornings – encore! Edition 2016/2017
We invite you to a series of family workshops ,,MIM-Mornings – encore!" - prepared for our guests who failed to participate in any of the Saturday workshops in previous year.
This year edition of MIM-Mornings offered as an encore includes the following topics:
During the workshop children will learn the history of tram depot, the area which houses the Museum of Municipal Engineering. Basing on the knowledge gained, they will fit the answers to prepared questions. Together with their parents they will make a quiz and build a simple electric circuit for checking the correct answers.
Children with their parents will do experiments, using magnets of different shapes. They will check, what happens if you bring the magnet close to ferrofluid. Together with their parents children will make jigsaw-puzzle of magnetic foil with their own drawing.
During the workshop children will take photos of light-painted outlines in a darkened room. Pictures painted with light will be sent to the participants via e-mail. In addition, children will make Christmas tree ornaments with pieces of car radiators and parts of machinery.
With the help of the leader children will make wax crayons in different shapes and colours. They will find out, which colours we define as primary colours and how to create secondary ones. They will make a colour wheel and – while watching the presentation - they will learn to use it.
During the workshop children will build the “Cartesian diver”. Together with their parents they will do experiments and learn how the toy works. While watching presentation, they will get to know the story of Archimedes and the king of Syracuse.
Together with their parents children will prepare colourful, sweet caviar, using spherification technique. This technique is used in molecular gastronomy. We will taste these cracking, colourful balls of various flavours during the workshop.
During the workshop participants will prepare effervescent cupcakes and bath bombs. Children will prepare a special mixture, which - when thrown into the water - starts to fizz. They will choose the colour and fragrance for their cosmetics, then they will form the bombs and prepare cupcakes in pastry tins.
