The Telegraph Museum at Porthcurno runs a free monthly Science Club , STEAM Explorers, for seven to 12 year olds, giving them the chance to learn about technology in a hands on, engaging session.
STEAM Explorers provides an exciting opportunity for children from all over West Cornwall to explore science ideas and learn about teamwork, transferable skills and independent research. We provide opportunities to explore a wide range of topics in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths, developing enquiry, problem solving and communication skills.
Topics will be varied and children taking part will be closely involved in choosing topics they would like to study during the year. We aim to provide at least one opportunity for the children to demonstrate what they have been doing to an audience. Last year we presented Science Busking in Penzance on Quay Fair Day during the Golowan Festival.
Sessions run from 10:30am to 12 noon in the Clore Learning Space at the museum and there is no charge for participation.
To sign up for the club, please email [email protected], or phone 01736 811914, with the name and age of your child and a sentence about why they would like to be part of the science club. Places are limited and are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
