This February Half Term is the perfect opportunity to explore the science that is used “behind the scenes” of a museum. Join us in the Learning Centre to make spectroscopes, thermometers and bugs.
Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) will be joined by the arts throughout the half term holiday. Enjoy the mix of science and art and take all of your creations home!
