Each history workshop is designed to give children context and an overview of the topic covered. We begin every visit with an interactive timeline activity and a short introduction to the era.
Compare the Ancient Civilisations on our Timeline
We then split into smaller groups to experience a range of hands-on discovery activities, each lasting around 45 minutes to keep children engaged and learning. Our exciting and innovative VR and AR (virtual and augmented reality) sessions are always very popular. Using the latest technology, children explore Ancient Greece. Working with a partner, children will complete a quest activity to find out some key facts about life as a Grecian all the while being deeply immersed in a virtual world.
