Key stage 5 science sessions

Key stage 5 sessions offer students the opportunity to handle Museum specimens and take part in object-based activities involving group work and discussion. In addition to the workshops below, we are happy to tailor sessions for your students and curriculum needs. Sessions can be combined with a visit to the Botanic Garden or the Museum of the History of Science. Please use our booking form or send us an email.
