Investigate is a hands-on science centre where school students can take charge of their own learning.

Students explore over three hundred real Museum specimens, which include everything from dinosaur fossils to butterflies and rare minerals.

They then carry out their own scientific investigations, looking for evidence, measuring, observing and recording their chosen specimen.

Our team of science educators facilitate the session and encourage students to make observations, look for relationships and draw their own conclusions.

Microscopes, scales, magnifying glasses, rulers, pencils and paper are available for students to use in their enquiries.

Learning themes: working scientifically
