M.A.D.E for Fun
Inside the Brick
Saturday, September 20th & Sunday, September 21st, 2014
M.A.D.E is building the Eureka Stockade entirely out of Lego® and we need many little hands to help. Children can visit for a one-hour Lego® session to add their pieces to the massive flag, connect with other builders and enjoy general Lego® and Duplo® play. The sessions are hosted by Inside the Brick - a professional Lego® play company, who’ll be in Ballarat with more colourful, block pieces than most people have ever seen! All participants receive a certificate and are encouraged to take photos of their work. Book Online.

Tiny miners, their wives and children, redcoat soldiers, police troopers and even the pikeman’s dog have been turned into Minecraft™ figures and hidden around M.A.D.E’s exhibition. Use the worksheet as a guide and see if you find them all.
M.A.D.E with MinecraftTM Lab
M.A.D.E’s digital devices have been set up for you to use. Learn to use Minecraft™ if you’ve never tried it before or come in and show-off your expertise. The Minecraft Lab will also host a selection of papercraft activities inspired by the popular game. Cut it, fold and colour it in, then take your creation home or leave it to be exhibited at M.A.D.E.
Cyber Storytime (11am & 2pm)
A colonial goldfield constructed inside a Minecraft™ terrain is the backdrop for this adventurous tale. Displayed on M.A.D.E giant, digital touchscreen, this story will take you on a block-by-block walk through of the Eureka Stockade.
