This summer Coventry Transport Museum are introducing their new exciting new family session, This makes That with These, taking place every Tuesday and Saturday.

This session invites you to satisfy your curiosity and use your creativity. Look inside and see how things work and create your own inventions with our challenge kits.

Wind Up Engines - 30 Jul 2019 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM, 30 Jul 2019 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM, 3 Aug 2019 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM, 3 Aug 2019 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM

A few of the museum's oldest cars have engines that were wound up with a starter handle. In this session you will find out a little more about these and other engines and then have a go at making a mini engine to take home.

Noise Makers - 6 Aug 2019 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM, 6 Aug 2019 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM, 10 Aug 2019 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM, 10 Aug 2019 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Psst… listen carefully! Can you hear that noise? Is it a cycle whooshing by, or a vrooming car engine? In this session you will explore how sound is made and amplified by vehicles and engineer a speaker to take home.

Cars and Mechanics: How does this work? - 13 Aug 2019 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM, 13 Aug 2019 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM, 17 Aug 2019 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM, 17 Aug 2019 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM

In this session you will focus on the different mechanics found in a car and figure out how these work. Can you use these techniques to make your own inventions?

Cars and Electronics: How does this do that? - 20 Aug 2019 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM, 20 Aug 2019 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM, 24 Aug 2019 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM, 24 Aug 2019 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM

“I push this button and then… that! But… how does it work?” Get into the electronics of a car, experiment with circuits and make your very own pretend dashboard to take home.

How to attach this to that - 27 Aug 2019 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM, 27 Aug 2019 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM, 31 Aug 2019 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM, 31 Aug 2019 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Our vehicles are put together in many different ways. Let’s explore how connecting parts makes a whole. Engineer your own creation to take home.
