Event Banner Image

The Doctor’s trusty sonic screwdriver has many uses: scanning, medical applications, welding and computer hacking.  We may have to wait a while before we have the technology for a device like the Doctors but families can join this workshop ran by STEAM Engineers, to paint your own MDF sonic screwdriver and create an LED circuit to light your sonic screwdriver up.

Programme a microbit to play the Doctor Who theme, make sonic screwdriver noises, and attach to your own light-up sonic screwdriver! The Microbits will need to stay after the workshops but the sonic screwdrivers can be taken home.
