Updates on the Buggy Battles of Calderdale

The website for Buggy Battles of Calderdale has new updates, including videos and an updated list of resources and materials and information of group sessions.

There are three videos up there now, more coming soon. If you follow them you will learn everything you need to make your own Battle Buggy.

There will just be Friday zooms for now until there is more need for them. To receive zoom joining information, please contact Steven on 07766517711.

Visit https://noisytoys.org/buggy-battles/ to view project updates and see the updated list of resources you will need.

The first video is a right-from-the-start basic one but worth a watch even if you have already started as everyone makes the same mistakes in my experience.

Please remember this is a pilot project and the team is working things out. There has been a lot of interest and everyone who has sent their details will get a confirmation of their places over the next few days.

For any young people who would like to join, please provide the following details:

  • full name
  • age
  • gender
  • contact email (parent) – this will be used for zoom invitations
  • emergency contact phone number (for when we can actually meet up after lockdown)

Join us for our Tactile Universe workshops and use 3D models and sensory activities developed by astrophysicists from the University of Portsmouth to explore the wonders of space and astronomy.

Children will get to create their own mini 3D models of the solar system to take home. Find out more on our website.

Places are free for visually impaired children aged 7-11 years and their families but must be booked in advance. Places are limited, so call Trizia on 01422 330069 or email trizia.wells@eureka.org.uk to book your place.
