Calling all bright sparks – Helmsley Community Library to run a hands-on Electricity Workshop

Helmsley Community Library will be running a Bright Sparks Electricity Workshop on Saturday 24th November.

Aimed at families with primary school aged children, the free workshop will run from 11am until 12pm. A practical, hands-on experience, the workshop will take a fun (and safe) look at electricity. After a (literally) hair-raising time using the Van der Graaff generator, students then combine their problem solving and circuit building skills to complete a range of activities including making games, fruit batteries, their very own LED torch and using an exciting new conductive ink to make a necklace.

Children must be accompanied by an adult. To book a place, visit the library or call 01609 534555. Helmsley Library is open 21 hours a week, offering a wide range of services and facilities for local people, including lending books, DVDs, audio books and online magazines, free use of computers, activities for all age groups, a local information point and access to books for research and learning.

Jeanne Brown, who chairs the Helmsley Community Library Steering Group and trustees, working with other volunteers, said: “We love these kinds of hands-on events, they’re so much fun and really get the imaginations of the children working overtime. Who knows what future scientists and engineers we might have in the room! We look forward to welcoming lots of families to take part.”
