Engine Room

Let your engineering minds and your dexterous hands play

Welcome to the Engine Room (previously Digital Media Lab) located on level 1 (opposite Galileo’s Study). You can let your imagination run wild as you create your biggest dream through our big hands on experiences! We have Imagination Playground Big Blue Blocks galore, including a new iPad app which allows you to build your concept before putting it to practise with our hands on big blocks. Or perhaps Rigamajig is more your style, piecing together wooden planks and wheels with nuts and bolts, hoisting a bag with a pulley, letting your curiosity lead the way through 21st century skills. We also have Lego and K’NEX available under parent/adult supervision to be enjoyed in this room too.
