OliOli celebrates turning two with a fun science and arts event for all the family

OliOli is celebrating its second birthday with the launch of a S.T.E.A.M event.

Based on the core subjects of science, technology, engineering, art and maths, the five-day event is kicking off on Friday October 18 and will run through half term.

Inquisitive little minds will be able to get stuck into a number of brand-new activities such as building and designing their own cars, programming a robot and constructing electric circuits.

Kids can also challenge themselves – and their balancing skills – riding the mind-bending square-wheeled tricycle. Parents, cameras at the ready.

Now for the science part, there are plenty of fun shows taking place around the educational museum and children can also find out the science behind the edutainment centre's gravity tube and what centripetal force is - so they can wow their buddies in the school playground with their new-found knowledge.

Expect the unexpected with international artists who will be performing a whole host of mind-bending, whimsical experiences that will leave the whole family scratching their heads in wonder.

Book online before Tuesday October 15 and get 30 percent off the ticket price.

Bring on half term.
Free (kids under 12 months), Dhs78 (kids 12-23 months), from Dhs156 (kids over 23 months), Dhs21 (adult). 9am-9pm, Sun Oct 18-Thu Oct 22. Al Quoz, www.olioli.ae (04 702 7300).
