About this Event

Looking for a school trip to bring Design Technology to life for your pupils?

7th and 11th October 2019

Complementing the Marvellous Machines exhibition, we are hosting a schools week to support Key Stage 2 pupils’ understanding of science, technology and engineering.

Pupils will have the chance to make their own automata and solve practical engineering problems in teams, as well as explore the displays and collections in closer detail.

This unique schools package will run for one week only, with either half day or full day options.

Please email us at to book your trip and find out more.


Science Fair Saturday 12th October 2019

We will round off the week by hosting a large-scale science fair – all local schools are welcome to bring along groups of children who have worked together at school to design and construct a marvellous machine of their own. Pupils are encouraged to man a stall which shows off their creations to the visiting public.
