Radio Control

STEAM Powered Education is having it’s tenth holiday workshop ‘Radio Control' at Pier Avenue Baptist Church (CO15 1NJ), Clacton during the Half term holiday on Tuesday 31st May. It will be from 9.00 am to 1.30 pm with snacks provided. Children will need to bring a packed lunch.

This should be a wonderful STEAM activity perfect for developing their ‘hands on’ skills and inspiring them to learn about how radio waves can control machines and what they are used for as well as the history of the discovery of radio waves. They will be making vehicles that have an aspect to radio control and also be able to take some of the vehicles home for free.

The cost is £20 for the day. I hope you agree that it will be worth it.
