February half-term fun at Cragside
This year we're celebrating engineered beauty - looking at how nature and man-made inventions can work together to make something amazing (like Lord Armstrong's Archimedes Screw, which generates water from the lake to create electricity). Throughout February half-term look out for events that celebrate nature, wildlife and engineering.
Saturday 16 - Tuesday 19 February, 11am - 3pm
Make a bird feeder to help our feathered friends survive the cold weather
Wednesday 20 February, 11am - 3pm
Look out for Street science with Newcastle University's science buskers. Can you work out why and how some of the cool things are happening?
Thursday 21 – Sunday 24 February, 11am - 3pm
Butterflies don’t just feed on flowers; make your own butterfly feeder to provide these fluttery creatures with a tasty snack
