Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

Stay safe, stay at home! There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

Description :

The traffic in our classroom is out of control, and we need to train up some traffic cops to deal with the problem!
In this half-day activity, we'll teach you how to use the visual programming tool Scratch to control lights and buttons.  Then we'll let you loose on our real-life, full-size traffic light system!  Will your code allow traffic to flow safely through the classroom, or will you cause chaos on the streets?

Taking programming skills from a concept on a screen to something tangible like an LED or a button is a major step forward for a coding beginner, making this activity ideal for children looking to take their knowledge of computing to new heights.
This workshop is aimed at children aged seven and up and is ideal for children at the KS2 and KS3 levels. Please note that all under 14's must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
The fee is £12 for workshop participants, whether an adult or a child.  Accompanying adults are charged our standard entry fee of £8.

Although the booking is for a specific time slot, entry to the museum is permitted all day.  The museum is open from 10am to 5pm.

Tea, coffee and snacks will be available from our Pac Lunch Shop.  And, plenty of seating for parents :)

Date: 02 June 2017
