July Holidays

The Day of The Thread - Tues 12th & Wed 13th July

Join us for Two Days of Making and Creating
with the University of Auckland and Questionable Research Labs

In the Science and Design Lab we will be doing a deep dive into all things stringy and thready. From rope, knots and catapults to crochet, knitting and weaving. Candyfloss and noodles will add to the chaos. We will Learn, Make and most definitely Experiment.


Day 1 will be an introduction to each of the skills we be playing with. It’s about trying things out, learning new skills and at any opportunity geeking out about the science behind it all.

Day 2 is a making day. Let’s use our new skills to Create Something New. Who knows what that will be? Experimentation encouraged. It could be a disaster! Or it could be crazy cool. Both outcomes will definitely happen.


Bring happiness and your give it a go attitude.
This event is for youth and teens with appreciation of disaster, success and weirdness.

Starting at 8:30 and ending at 5pm each day

Lunch will be provided and there will be plenty of fruit and water for snacking.
