Power Up is a series of workshops for children aged 7-12 during February half term, which will explore how we consume energy and how that affects our planet. Power Up aims to show children how their imagination and creative thinking can make a real difference to the future of our planet.


Join artist Melanie Terrade for a hands-on workshop exploring how everyday technologies can be redesigned to be more environmentally friendly. Children will choose a device and explore its current sustainability, before imagining how it could be redesigned. New solutions will be created through a combination of drawing, Tinkercad software and physical prototyping. The session will encourage young people to think about the impact our behaviour has on the environment, and to get them to think creatively about solutions.

Dates: Wednesday – Friday 20 – 22 February

Times: 11am – 1pm

Age Suitability: 7-12

Tickets: Pay what you can* (minimum £1).

*We want these workshops to be accessible to all. Lighthouse is a charity, all donations and ticket fees support our programme of talks, exhibitions and education initiatives.
