The Herschel Museum is delighted to welcome secondary and further education groups. Both the museum and its collections offer amazing resources to support KS3, GCSE and A-level students across a wide ranging curriculum and we are happy to work with you to tailor a workshop to suit your requirements.
As part of our ‘Wonder Women of Space’ exhibition in 2018 we arranged for Luke Lucas (pictured below), a Spacecraft Operations Engineer working at the European Space Agency, to visit students at Ralph Allen School in Bath. Luke controls the Mars Express spacecraft which is currently orbiting the planet and she gave a fascinating talk to two groups of students about her work and her career path.
We also work closely with the Bath Astronomers and are keen to develop links with local secondary schools and colleges. We can arrange outreach visits to school astronomy clubs or science lessons as well as welcoming students to the museum itself. Please contact our Learning & Engagement team on 01225 338727, or via email for more details and to discuss your requirements.
