A team of Meccano experts will be holding interactive, hands-on workshops at London's Science Museum.

Make it with Meccano will take place between December 19th and December 21st.

"Meccano is a wonderful fusion of creativity and construction, with science at its very heart," commented Sue Barratt, country manager, Meccano Toys UK.

She added: "The workshops are a brilliant opportunity for families to escape from the chaos of Christmas and spend some quality time playing together to create models from a variety of Meccano components."

Meccano was identified as an appropraite partner brand by the Science Museum’s Family Programmes team. The Museum has been providing hands-on learning for children and adults since the 1930s.

Anthony Richards, gallery programmes manager at the Science Museum, said: "There are so many strong associations for us with Meccano, like them, many scientists and engineers have long admitted hours of their lost youth amongst our working models, demonstrations and exhibits."

This latest workshop follows recent activity with The Scouts Association and the National Space Centre.
