The Science Museum in South Kensington welcomes over 2.8 million visitors each year and cares for our national collections in science, technology, industry and medicine – over 300,000 objects, some of which date back to prehistoric times, and including more world ‘firsts’ than any other single institution. Through permanent galleries, temporary exhibitions, special events, an IMAX 3D Cinema and our Learning and Outreach programmes the Science Museum’s remit is to make sense of the science that shapes our lives and be the best place in the world for people to enjoy science.
This collection illustrates just a few of the educational resources that are available online. These will allow your students to explore and undertand issues such as climate change, the carbon cycle, sustainable development and renewable energy.
