Activities: Fixing It
Got stuck with building a model, or got a broken toy or game?
Bring it along to the Learning Centre for help and advice.
Children often receive Birthday and Christmas presents that are mechanical models that have to be built. These are often quite complicated models and things go wrong, and the child may not be able to progress the project. Parents don’t always have the time to sort the problem. The Branch Line will create an environment where parents/family members can bring along the child with the mechanical model to get help. Once set on the right lines, the family will be encouraged to bring the model back, either for more help or to show it is complete.
As experience is gained, the aim is to establish a suite of videos addressing different problems encountered with popular models and posting these on The Branch Line web site.
Examples of activities that were successful and would be of use to other children will be added as experience grows.
