Launchpad

Alongside the reopening of the Science Museum’s Launchpad gallery, this project delivered science shows at schools across the UK.

Context

The project coincided with the relaunch of the museum’s popular hands-on Launchpad gallery following a major face-lift.

Outcomes

We visited selected schools across the UK to deliver shows and workshops to students in Year 7 and S1 in Scotland.

Each school involved with the project experienced a two-day teacher training course, watched one of our shows, took part in a science communication skills workshop and completed the Launchbox Challenge (a hands-on workshop using our specially made kit to design and create a chain reaction contraption).

We reached over 8,500 students and 66 teachers throughout the project.
