Wellington Library | Lego fun for this school holidays

School Holidays

Activate Lego! Lego, Lego everywhere!

Be at the Library at 2.30pm today! Bring your friends, your brothers, your sisters, bring everyone to show off your building skills using nothing but Lego and your imagination.

On July 12 in week two of the holidays we will activate a Chain Reaction by constructing a Rube Goldberg machine.

You will be using all kinds of materials such as cardboard, sticky tape, tennis balls, books and anything else you think will help make your machine work.  Rube Goldberg is listed in Merriam-Webster’s dictionary as an adjective: “doing something simple in a very complicated way that is not necessary.” Each session starts at 2.30 and costs $2 to join in the fun.

What’s New

Out of The Box: Recycle household cardboard into incredible art projects that you can wear, share, and play with.

Learn how to build and decorate more than 25 amazing creations, including costumes and castles, gifts and games, puppets and pirate ships.

101 Brilliant Things For Kids To Do With Science: If you thought science was all boring textbooks and tables, you are in for a brilliant surprise.

The real stuff is a lot more exciting (and messy) than that. Perhaps that’s why you hadn’t heard about it before. But don’t worry – it’s all here, so why not get started?

Before you know it you could be building a balloon powered racing car, launching a rocket, levitating a  ping pong ball, concocting fizzy lemonade, creating bubble art, learning the magic straw trick, shooting an air cannon or making square bubbles.
