SOLD OUT! Museum Secondary Science offers fully subscribed for the Summer Term

Earlier this year we announced that The Museum was at maximum capacity for some of our primary offers, mostly due to the popularity of our new Egypt programme for KS2.  This excitement has trickled over into our Secondary and Post 16 learning sessions, as our science programming is absolutely chock-a-block for Summer Term!

In June and July, we anticipate that over 400 students and 100 teachers will visit the Museum to participate in one of our structured science workshops.  Forensic Science is our most popular offer, which offers KS3 and KS4 pupils the chance to use hands on laboratory equipment that is not available in schools.  Click here for the link to the pre visit information

Louise has organised a series of ‘Meet the Scientist” days which enable students to meet Andrew Gray, our Curator of Herpetology, to get up close and personal to some of our live animal specimens from the Vivarium and to talk to Andrew about his research overseas.

I am also offering something special for local schools to celebrate the Darwin Bicentenary. Developed in collaboration with the BBSRC, The ‘Clippy Island- An Investigation into Natural Selection’ activity is being offered to four local schools as an outreach offer.  This hour long workshop allows students to meet Museum Scientists who share their knowledge and enthusiasm for the legacy of Darwin’s work.  If you are interested in learning more about this activity, please click here to access the BBSRC website- http://www.bbsrc.ac.uk/society/schools/secondary/natural_selection/natural_selection_teachers.pdf

Even though we are full for this Summer, you can still contact us for bookings and availability for Autumn Term!
