Virtual workshops

Bring the Natural History Museum into your classroom with our live virtual workshops.

Virtual workshops cost £10 per session. Please be aware that we are only accepting card payments and no longer take BACS payments for school sessions. Please do speak to the contact centre when booking if you have any questions.

Once you book your workshop, you'll be sent a secure link to the video conferencing platform Zoom. Each workshop is live and is for just one class. For safeguarding reasons, at least one teacher will need to be present with the class for the entirety of the workshop; they will also be required to type in pupils' responses, helping us to make the session as interactive as possible.

Virtual workshops

Our curriculum-linked workshops run for 45-60 minutes. Our expert Science Educators will help your class explore the natural world through a series of fun interactive activities and questions, developing skills in scientific thinking and enquiry.
