Discovery Centre is open to the general public during Nottinghamshire school holidays - come indoors for exciting family fun in our interactive galleries and learn about how things are made - Making It! is housed in the old Mansfield Brewery building, now converted into a high tech Discovery Centre full of exciting and fun things to see and do.
Be amazed at how invention happens and how it succeeds and fails - produce your own designs on modern, light-box drawing boards and 3D Computer Aided Design computers - test materials to destruction - try to run an assembly line and puzzle out the mysteries of bar codes - use a robot to assemble the finished product - put your head into a virtual fizzy drinks factory - star on a newspaper front page and then print it - try to recycle waste and find natural resource. You can choose from ten kits - Yes you actually design and build your own fantastic model to take home! What will you choose - space rocket, speed buggy , fairground carousel, live wire challenge etc. - whatever you choose you will have great fun building your kit.
