Gallery resources

Our activity sheets, trails and apps have been designed to spark students' curiosity while they are exploring the galleries in the Science Museum.

Some are linked to specific curriculum areas or particular galleries, while others can be used to to help students engage with exhibits in any of our displays. All of them encourage thinking and discussion about how science and technology shape our lives.

They are all free to download and use.
