Ready, Steady, Go!

MOTAT’s gearing up for another action-packed holiday experience this April, so get ready to race, roll, and ricochet as we explore transportation in its multiple forms. From the thrill of the race track to the intricacies of transportation networks, Ready, Steady, Go, explores the fundamental theories that shape out networks and help to produce champions.

Learn about aerodynamics, traction, power, and weight when you create, customise, and test your own car shell on our purpose-built radio-control-car race track in the ‘Turbodrome.’

Then it’s marble mayhem in the Discovery Dome with ‘Marbles Unleashed’ illustrating how landscapes and contours impact on the transport networks that cross it. Follow the marbles as they travel over, under, around, and through the giant custom-built marble run. Then design your own marble routes using our magnetic boards. Be sure not to miss the excitement at one of the regular marble races taking place throughout the day.

Make sure to take a trip to the Waitakere Station to see the new ‘Jeu Play’ module by Storybox. Immerse yourself in a universe of sound with a variety of interactive music installations.

If you need a break from all the excitement, head to the ‘Imagination Station’ for some low intensity games and weird and wonderful creative activities.
