STEAM Explorers free monthly club for 7 to 12-year olds

STEAM Explorers is an exciting opportunity for children to explore ideas linked to our Museum Exhibitions and Displays led by Paul Tyreman.

Children will explore Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths, developing enquiry, problem-solving and communication skills as well as taking part in hands-on things to do.

For our autumn sessions, we will be linking our sessions in with our Fibre Optics exhibition. You can find out more here. 

Things to do will include:

21 September: Find out about how light travels by making shadow prints and building pinhole cameras.

19 October: Investigate ways we can control light using mirrors and lenses.

16 November: Find out how optical fibres work and use your imagination to repurpose a fibre optic toy.

Get involved:

Sessions run from 10:30 am to 12 noon in the Clore Learning Space at the museum and there is no charge for taking part.
No booking required.
