The Science Museum on Exhibition Road in South Kensington, London was founded in 1857 and is one of the city’s major tourist attractions, attracting 3.3 million visitors every year! It has five floors packed with historic, modern and interactive fun for the whole family to enjoy, including a variety of galleries such as: Exploring Space, Making the Modern World, Who Am I and The Secret Life of the Home. You can’t help but get lost in the magic of science at The Science Museum!
This summer, The Science Museum have invited Learning Resources to demonstrate some of our scientific toys to the little scientists visiting the museum. The next demonstrations will take place on Wednesday 15th & 22nd August, located by the entrance of the museum just outside of the shop.
What We’re Doing
Does your little one dream of becoming a scientist? Do they want to make things fizz, bubble and pop? Well here at Learning Resources, we believe in building a passion for learning.
Join our team for a demonstration where your little learners can experience a real science experiment. Blow their minds with our Primary Science® Lab Set as they mix chemicals to create an erupting volcano. Whilst wearing their safety goggles they can dunk, stir and pour the ingredients themselves and watch as their scientific dreams come to life!
See their minds burst with excitement as they experiment with our Zoomy™ 2.0 Handheld Digital Microscope. With up to 54x magnification your little ones can explore objects and see the world up close like they’ve never seen it before.
Our team will guide them through the different textures and structures around them. They can study the veins that carry food and water to a leaf, the individual barbs in a feather and can even use Zoomy on their own skin! Simply press Zoomy onto an object and explore it up close.
What if they dream of becoming a game designer or want to learn how to code? Learning Resources has just the thing to capture their imagination. Botley™ The Coding Robot Activity Set teaches screen-free coding for children aged 5 and up. Using the simple remote control, children can programme a series of 80 steps, including loop commands and object detection. Botley can also ‘black line follow’ – use the cards included in the activity set, they can create a path for Botley who will twist and turn, following the black line.
Much like Botley, our Code & Go® Robot Mouse Activity Set will teach your little gamers how to code. Instead of using a remote control, Colby the Robot Mouse has buttons on its back to help you code a path to the cheese! We’ve put objects and barriers in the way, see if your little ones can figure out the code to get the Robot Mouse around them.
Visit us to see your children code their way to fun!
Last but not least, Playfoam the squishy, squashy mouldable toy that doesn’t stick to the carpet and offers your child hours of creative play. Join Learning Resources at the Science Museum where we have Playfoam® ready and waiting to be played with. Let their creative minds go wild and watch them build all kinds of shapes and creatures, maybe even something they have seen in the museum!
This child friendly, non-toxic foam can be moulded, flattened, stretched and best of all, leaves no mess behind. With many sets and packs available, Playfoam® creates endless opportunities for fun and play!
So, come and see us at the Science Museum from 11:00 AM – 3:30 PM on Wednesday the 15th and 22nd of August. We will be just outside of the gift shop where all these products will be available.
