New Science workshops at the National Media Museum

Date Posted: 10/06/2015

The National Media Museum in Bradford will introduce two new workshops for Key Stages 2 and 3 in time for the start of the next academic year in September.

From 14th September two new workshops will be added to Bradford National Media Museum’s education programme for Key Stages 2 and 3.

Targeted towards the Key Stage 2 Science National Curriculum, Shadow Science: Create, Cut, Illuminate is a hands-on workshop which will give pupils the chance to use cutting edge technology and different materials to create their own shadow puppets and learn about light and shadow.

Light Printing is a Key Stage 3 Science workshop which will let students explore the electro-magnetic spectrum and how it’s used to create images. After discovering how ultra-violet is used to create cyanotype prints, pupils will then have the opportunity to get hands-on and create their own cyanotype, testing out a range of materials to either block or allow UV light to pass through to produce an image. This workshop runs until 23rd October.

Booking is essential for both workshops.
