Hi Thomas,

Thanks for getting in touch - We'd love to come in and have a day of
fun! The nerf targets are still floating around in storage, I'm sure we
can bring them back out!

What are you looking for us to do? It'd be cool if we could work on
something interactive that aligns with the theme! Would a few
interactive installations with some excited faces to talk about them be
along the lines of what you're after?

The Lego kits look excellent! I have a 20 year old mindstorms 1.5 kit
sitting around - It was a mixture of that and the Edinburgh science
festival that started me down the route to engineering, I hope it still
has the same impact on kids!

It might be a good idea to have a coffee or something at some point to
work out what we're going to do together.

Dave Hibberd

> Hi there,
> My name is Thomas, I am the head of learning at Aberdeen Science Centre. A few years ago you came and ran an amazing nerf gun/tambourine sensor shooting gallery at our IET open doors day.
> Our old home on constitution street is currently being completely renovated, so we are at a temporary site just around the corner from you on George Street until Spring 2020. (the old Co-op opposite John Lewis.)
> Out upcoming visitor theme is 'Code Factory'. We have secured funding to purchase some amazing bits of kit including tablets, laptops, and a variety of robots (Lego Mindstorms<https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1EODB_enGB704GB704&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=8jZMXL_BApKe1fAPxJGI2A4&q=lego+mindstorm&oq=lego+mindstorm&gs_l=img.3...1126.1126..1333...0.0..0.0.0.......1....1..gws-wiz-img._iT8iZCsJws>, Lego WeDo<https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1EODB_enGB704GB704&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=xzZMXKrLPIGS1fAPu5uIqAU&q=lego+wedo&oq=lego+wedo&gs_l=img.3...16759.17665..17756...0.0..0.0.0.......1....1..gws-wiz-img.hzaQlnsID_A>, Dash and Dot<https://www.google.com/search?q=dash+and+dot&rlz=1C1EODB_enGB704GB704&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjuyMrznovgAhU5VBUIHXj2DOEQ_AUIDygC>)
> The theme will run from 4th March - 2nd June 2019. Would you like to come and run some activities at the science centre for a day during this time? Any dates during the Easter holidays (1st - 14th April) would be great as we can promote this as a special event 'Hacklab Takeover'.
> Let me know your thought. Given how popular the nerf gun challenge was, I would be really keen to work more with you!
> Cheers
