Workshop Summary

We have limited availability for summer 2022 due to booking cancellations. We still have some spaces available for our Scienceworks event in June if this is of interest. 

Shipbuilding has always been important in the region and in this workshop we shall explore why. The children will get the chance to explore the different jobs on a shipyard and explore some of the ships displayed in the museum. The class will then test out materials to see which float and sink before using different materials to modify a ship to improve its buoyancy.
