School Holiday Program - STEM - Billy Cart Workshop

1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Be kind to yourself and discover the fun to be had when you learn to make your own Billy Cart, test it and take it home. A Billy Cart (Kart) is a famous gravity-powered vehicle your grandparents do not want you to know about.  Like skateboarding there are no brakes; crashes, scrapes, and bruises are part of the fun.  All participants must bring a bike helmet, wrist guard gloves and wear enclosed shoes. Either long sleeve shirt and long pants or knee and elbow pads. 

All children must be accompanied by a parent or carer.

Booking essential. 7+ years.
