“Rocket Bunny Meets Turbo Tiger”
« on: July 26, 2022, 04:28:39 PM »
Animals everywhere: when you take a closer look, many cars from Mercedes‑Benz have a connection to the animal kingdom. Think of terms such as honeycomb radiator, tail fin and gull wing. So what’s behind all this? Children aged 6 to 11 will be able to find out, at this year’s “Rocket Bunny Meets Turbo Tiger” summer holiday programme at the Museum. This will take the form of a series of half-day workshops, from 2 to 26 August 2022: always from Tuesday to Friday, either in the morning (10 a.m. to 1 p.m.) or in the afternoon (2 p.m. to 5 p.m.).

The young participants begin by embarking on a voyage of discovery through the permanent exhibition, where they explore the details of the vehicles on display from throughout the history of the brand dating back to 1886. Where can they find exciting comparisons between headlamps, radiator grilles and other elements, for example, and motifs from the animal kingdom?

After this explorer tour, the children move on to the Museum’s CAMPUS, where they can let their imagination run wild and render the ideas they have gathered in artistic form to design their very own car of the future. This personal vehicle is drawn with coloured pens and crafted as a small model using a variety of materials. For the holiday workshops, the Museum is once again collaborating with the Unteres Remstal Art School.

Registration for “Rocket Bunny Meets Turbo Tiger” is possible from Monday to Saturday between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. by calling +49 (0) 711 17 30 000 – or by email to classic@mercedes-benz.com. Each discovery group comprises a maximum of 15 children. Participation costs 10 euros and is paid on the day of the event in the museum.
