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.
This study day has been developed this year to relate to the new permanent gallery, Being Human, which opened in September 2019.
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.
