Birmingham Museum Trust Launches New Education Programme

Birmingham Museums Trust has launched its 2015/16 education programme to inspire and delight pupils and students with stimulating and memorable workshops, self-guided visits and interactive exhibitions.

Dozens of activities based around culture, history and science are included in the packed programme, which will be running at BMT’s nine stunning venues to engage school pupils as well as college and university students.

The new education programme has been designed to open students up to immersive opportunities that are not available in school classrooms, ranging from hands-on history workshops to scientific lab experiments.

Created to support subject areas across the National Curriculum, Expert Learning sessions cater for groups from Early Years to Further Education and for all learning styles, including special educational needs and home education.

School groups are being given the chance to take a magical journey through the night sky filled with stars; enjoy some hair-raising fun experimenting with static and current electricity or ‘fly’ into an animal world and plant cell to discover the microscopic world as part of the educational programme at Thinktank Science Museum. Youngsters can also learn more about ancient history at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery or see the past brought to life at one of Birmingham Museum Trust’s stunning Heritage attractions.

With a number of trained Arts Award Advisors in the Learning Team, schools also have the opportunity to enter their students for a Discover, Explore, Bronze or Silver Arts Award through their visits as part of the education programme.

Andrew Fowles, Learning Manager, said: “We are delighted to be launching our new education programme, which is packed with events, activities and workshops to inspire pupils and students. All of our activities have been designed to support the National Curriculum and we can’t wait to welcome school groups to our stunning attractions to be inspired by science, art and history."
