10:30am to 04:00pm
CAT’s children’s activities are a great place for children to learn about sustainability through fun, creativity and experimentation, using sustainable and recycled materials. Activities include making junk inventions for the future running on renewable energy; helping to create a model eco-house with a productive garden; exploring the biodiversity on site with slug and bug hunts and; painting, a chance to reflect on the world or simply play with colour.
The activities run from 10:30 until 4:00 with four main sessions a day, each around an hour long. There are experienced staff to lead the sessions, who can also help with information about the site. There is no need to book and you can drop in at any time a session is running, although you will get the most out of it if you come at the start of a session. Children do need to be accompanied by an adult, but there is plenty for grown-ups to do, either getting stuck in with the models, or sitting back with a magazine and watching the children create. And when you need a break, enjoy the playground nearby, or have a snack at the restaurant.
The activities vary thoughout the week.
