Hol­i­day fun at Mo­tat

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Chil­dren and adults alike can im­merse them­selves in fun ac­tiv­i­ties de­signed to high­light the im­por­tant role that sound plays in our lives at Mo­tat th­ese school hol­i­days.

Vis­i­tors can ex­pe­ri­ence an ex­cit­ing ex­plo­sion of sound with the Sound FX Hol­i­day Ex­pe­ri­ence from to­mor­row un­til July 28.

Mu­seum di­rec­tor Michael Fraw­ley says Mo­tat hol­i­day ex­pe­ri­ences are de­signed to be an in­ter­ac­tive ex­pe­ri­ence for chil­dren that is both fun and ed­u­ca­tional and will keep the whole fam­ily en­ter­tained.

The high­light of Sound FX will be the The Mo­tat Ra­dio Show, an im­mer­sive play that in­vites kids to join in on the per­for­mance.

Other in­ter­ac­tive ac­tiv­i­ties in­clude bring­ing a silent vin­tage movie to life by cre­at­ing sound ef­fects, dis­cov­er­ing the con­cept of ono­matopoeia through a cartoon sto­ry­telling work­shop and craft­ing a mu­si­cal rain stick.

Ad­di­tion­ally the Fon­terra Science Road­show re­turns with two live daily shows – Bal­loons and Bernoulli, an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into pres­sure, and The Sci­en­tific Pantry which re­lates science to typ­i­cal pantry foods and liq­uids.

‘‘We’re ex­cited that

the Fon­terra Science Road­show is com­ing back for the third year in a row,’’ Mr Fraw­ley says.

‘‘The shows are re­lat­able and en­ter­tain­ing to vis­i­tors of all ages and even par­ents have been known to learn a thing or two.’’

Mo­tat vis­i­tors can en­joy Sound FX and the Fon­terra Science Road­show as part of their gen­eral ad­mis­sion fee to Mo­tat.
