Stoke-on-Trent Museums

Real World Science partner

At Stoke-on-Trent Museums, students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of free learning activities linked to the National Curriculum for science. Our experienced presenters support pupils and make the science accessible. All workshops are based on our gallery exhibits and use our wide range of resources and expertise.

Key Stage 3

In the interactive session, Earth Science Show: Great Shakes, pupils have the opportunity to model the dynamic Earth. They can marvel at the diversity, complexity and beauty of life on Earth in the interactive sessions All Change and Beetling About or participate in the work of museum scientists in Hoard Hunters and Gallery Shoot.  In The Colour of Nature workshop pupils will explore colour in the natural world with specimens and spectrometers. Key stage 2/3 transition pupils are also welcome to participate in these sessions. 

Key stage 4

KS4 pupils have the chance to experience cutting-edge science in our regular How Science Works events. In Fossils, Microfossils and a Blind Date they reveal the microfossils present in a clay sample and are challenged to determine the geological age of the sample.

Further sessions are delivered at Gladstone Pottery Museum and Etruria Industrial Museum. Microbes and Disease links well with Gladstone’s sanitation exhibition and 1890s Doctor's House, whilst Invisible and Dangerous? allows students to explore the unseen world of atoms, molecules and radiation.
