New Inventors is a fortnightly hands-on workshop for home ed students to explore the history of invention and innovation.
Spark your children’s creativity by learning about historic inventions from the museum's collections, from world-changing innovations to oddball artefacts consigned to the footnotes of history. At each session, children will also be able to build their own creations using unusual upcycled materials from our inventor space. Bring along your thinking caps!
