Every year since the first event in 2000 (pictured below left) we have held workshops for schoolchildren which have taught exciting science in an enthralling way. Feedback from teachers has been excellent and in most years we have been obliged to turn some schools away due to being over-subscribed. Usually, each all-day session has places for 60 children. They are divided into three groups of 20 and take part in three activities in turn.
We have no specific Science Week activities this year but two of our ice activities fit in with the theme of "Exploration and Discovery".
There is space for a maximum of 60 pupils and at least 8 adults each day (usually 2 school classes)
From 10.00 a.m. to 2.30 p.m. (approximately).
£5.00 per child. Accompanying adults are free up to a ratio of 1:4. Price includes:

We are proud to hold the Sandford Award for excellence in museum education, from the Heritage Education Trust.
