Taking place directly in the gallery spaces, Mini Museum Engineers play series offers a great opportunity for little ones to begin to explore museum environments in a way that is fun and meaningful to them. Led by the expert Learning team, sessions have been carefully designed to help promote early engineering and problem-solving skills, supporting with STEM-based learning through hands-on play items that differ every week.

Not sure what STEM is? Don’t worry, you don’t really need to know what it is to enjoy and embrace these activities. That’s what are skilled and talented Learning Team are here for. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. This can sound a little scary, especially when you have children aged under 5, but STEM based play is important for children in their early years to develop skills and knowledge that they will use as they enter school and into their adulthood too. Exposure to any play that encourages children to figure things out, how things work and to be creative is STEM, and as you become more familiar with our sessions, you will quickly realise that STEM is all around us, all the time, and you will have been supporting your children with this already, perhaps without even realising it.
