The Great Science Museum Object Hunt



Find something powered by steam... Find something smaller than a mouse... Find something that you wish you had invented...

Students work in teams to choose fifteen exhibits in the Museum using the list provided in the pdf below. There are no right or wrong answers and the activity is designed to encourage imagination, creativity, observation and discussion about the things on display and about how we use science and technology in our lives.

If you have cameras or video cameras available, students can take photos or make short film clips of their chosen exhibits to share their experiences back at school.
