The Newman Chamber of Commerce in Partnership with BHP are excited beyond belief. Our FREE Innovation Family Day is all sorts of awesome. Designed for adults and children alike. For a day filled with family fun, come and explore, learn, play, touch, sense and connect.

 Here’s a sneak peek:

  • Flight innovation design challenge – families can go head to head in a flight innovation design challenge where they design, build, try and refine flying machines and test them on the air table exhibit. This exhibit simulates airflight and provides opportunities for all family members to get hands on with the innovation process. 
  • Micro:bits coding activity – families will learn the basics computer programming by coding their name in lights on a micro:bit
  • Menace (Machine Educable Noughts and Crosses Engine) – through an interactive game of tic tac toe, families will learn the fundamental applications behind machine learning and teach our low fi machine to become a noughts and crosses champion
