The Microsoft Store in Sydney has teamed up with Hot Wheels to launch a series of hands-on workshops for kids during the July school holidays.
Celebrating the release of the Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels Expansion Pack on Xbox One, the workshops – created by brand activation agency The Spaceship – give young racing fans a chance to build tracks and race actual cars from the Hot Wheels toy brand.
The two-hour workshops allow participants to get creative (and maybe a little bit competitive) while learning more about STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and concepts including energy, force and motion, as well as the development of analytical skills.
Participants also have the chance to explore the new Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels Expansion Pack on Xbox One, in which players take iconic Hot Wheels vehicles on high-speed adventures to new Australian locations.
Kumar Manix, founder of and creative director at The Spaceship, said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Xbox and Hot Wheels to bring these two much-loved brands together this holidays.
“It’s fantastic to see young fans engaging with the workshops so enthusiastically and discovering the STEM disciplines in such a fun and interactive way.”
