What you’ll do

Your students will join us for a day of activities exploring the theme of human enhancement. They’ll use our collections to explore the different ways humans enhance themselves and they’ll give a presentation to demonstrate their knowledge.

In the afternoon they'll test a hypothesis by doing a scientific experiment to ‘enhance themselves’. The day ends with your students debating a topic relevant to science and society today.

Who can come

We have developed this study day for groups of students aged 14 to 19, studying GCSEs or post-16 qualifications at school or sixth-form college. You can bring 20 to 30 students, accompanied by staff at a ratio of 1:10.

Due to the small scale of our free programme, we take bookings exclusively from schools in the Greater London area until Monday 10th December; after that all schools and colleges are welcome to get in touch.
