This October, we have set ourselves the challenge to understand energy as a resource. What is energy? What does it do? Where does it come from?

Throughout the whole of October, we will explore energy by using STEM concepts (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) discovering how it is used throughout our own collection.

Engineer gigantic structures and tiny masterpieces out of multifaceted materials.

Explore this topic in a playful way with open ended resources.

Challenges will also be waiting for children aged 5-8 so we can all play, explore and learn amid our collections.
