The Olympics may be a fortnight away, but some of the young ones are already getting pumped up for it.
Goulburn Mulwaree Library hosted a Mini-Olympics event on Wednesday, July 7 for children aged eight to 12 years of age.
There were five groups of three and each group had to pick a country to represent.
Organiser Monique Hayes said the 15 kids involved all had a great time and learned a lot.
"We created a series of challenges to develop teamwork, some problem solving skills and strategic thinking," Ms Hayes said.
"It involved a couple of STEM concepts as well.
"Given the Olympics are just around the corner, I hope they get excited about it and get in the spirit."
Some of the activities the children took part in included stacking 10 cups by only using string, creating an Olympic flame in a bottle using vegetable oil and warm water and making a paper plane to see how far it would go and how much cargo it could carry.
There was also a challenge that involved creating static electricity using balloons and an Olympic themed trivia quiz.
