Update on 9th October 2015: We have a few remaining sessions for children aged over 12 years only. Due to exceptional demand, we are now fully booked for the under 8s and under 12s age groups - keep checking our website as we will soon be announcing dates for future Home Educator Days at Birmingham Museums.

We are pleased to confirm the date for the next Home Educator Day at Thinktank will be on Thursday 5th November 2015, from 10am - 4.30pm.

Join the Learning Team for a day of workshops and activities tailored for Home Educator families. The day will consist of hands-on workshops, interactive science shows, planetarium shows and a chance to explore the museum galleries.

A Home Educator Day costs £16 per child over the age of three (£12 for season ticket holders). Each paying child is entitled to a free accompanying adult (additional adults are £5.96). Children under 3 years can attend for free, although there are no specific activities for this age group.
