School’s out and fun’s in

Cross River Rail’s brand-new free school holiday program will be taking place between 13 December and 23 January at the Cross River Rail Experience Centre.

Following on from September’s successful program, Cross River Rail has developed a range of educational activities for all ages, providing families with a unique opportunity to have fun while learning about Queensland’s largest infrastructure project.

Activities range from encouraging children to become city planners and build their own future developments from Lego, to using their problem-solving skills to design their own tunnelling mega-machine.

Future coding champions need look no further than the beginner’s robotics coding workshop, which was developed in partnership with Micromelon Robotics.

Cross River Rail has also partnered with STEM Punks to create an immersive innovation experience which will see kids design a 3D Olympic Village using augmented reality technology.

The Cross River Rail Experience Centre is a community engagement and education hub developed in partnership with Queensland Museum, aiming to provide detailed project information, digital engagement experiences, and learning opportunities for visiting members of the public.

Some activities are drop-in sessions while others require bookings are limited spots are available. To see the full list of activities and book, visit the Cross River Rail’s Experience Centre’s website.
