Autumn term workshops at Eureka

Date Posted: 26/06/2013

Eureka! The National Children’s Museum, based in Halifax, Yorkshire has announced details of its autumn term workshops, which teachers can book on selected days from 4th September to 22nd December.

As part of a school visit to the new All About Me gallery, teachers can book one resident ‘role-play’ Doctor, Dentist or Health Visitor as a guide. They lead your school group through the gallery and engage students in a range of challenges linked to Science and health themes.

Other highlights on the programme include:

Food for Thought: Key Stage 1

A one hour workshop, where school groups will engage their senses with a variety of activities connecting with food. They will investigate textures, tastes and smells and use a variety of tools to explore and to make observations and measurements.

Fast Food Fun: Key Stage 2

Pupils will learn about healthy eating and exercise (and may get a little puffed out too) in this hour-long workshop. They’ll focus on ways of maintaining a healthy and nutritious diet; food energy content and activity levels and how carbohydrates, proteins and fats affect their health.

Young explorers: Key Stage 2

To celebrate World Space Week, two experts in the field of space education will be in residence at Eureka! on the 9th October, for a day of workshops showcasing space exploration and encounters.

Robots explore the universe

A 45-minute interactive workshop where children on a school visit can learn about the history of robots and how they have developed to support space exploration, including on Mars.

The blue planet and the red planet

A 45-minute interactive workshop which will take school groups on a fun journey exploring both Earth and Mars and the importance of the ESA aerospace industry.
