Investigate for primary
Event type: Workshop
Location: Investigate Centre
Suitable for: key stage 2 (ages 7-11)
Capacity: 30 pupils
Duration: 45 minutes
Investigate is a hands-on science centre where school pupils can take charge of their own learning.
Pupils 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 pupils to make observations, look for relationships and draw their own conclusions.
Microscopes, scales, magnifying glasses, rulers, pencils and paper are available for pupils to use in their enquiries.
Learning themes: working scientifically
School group visits to the Museum
The Museums at South Kensington and Tring have reopened to the general public.
Due to Health and Safety guidelines we are unable to welcome back large group visits, including school groups, until further notice. This is for both self-guided visits and booked workshops and shows.
We are currently working on a plan for school visits to return, as well as exciting opportunities for us to connect with you digitally in school. Please email email@example.com if you have any questions.
We look forward to welcoming you and your students back as soon as we can. Sign up to our Teachers' newsletter to be the first to hear when school bookings re-open.
