Launchpad open for Key Stage 3 bookings

 
Students in Launchpad gallery

Overview

Launchpad is reserved for particular age groups in particular days. This is to ensure that all children can access the hands-on exhibits at their own pace and it allows them to collaborate with other pupils of a similar age.

Please check the calendar below for dates when the gallery is open for Key Stage 3. The calendar does not reflect real-time availablity so please have alternative dates in mind when you request to visit Launchpad as part of your visit itinerary.

For KS3 dates from September 2015 please check the calendar on this page.

Alongside your Launchpad booking, you can also request places for one of our lively science shows. To find out more about the gallery and the science shows click here.

Please be aware that after 14:30 other age groups can be booked into the gallery so younger and older children may be present too.


New Developments

From November 2015 our Launchpad gallery will be closed for about a year while we transform the area into an amazing new interactive gallery. The new gallery will be bigger and better than ever before, and free for schools.

Throughout that period our lively science show – ]The Rocket Show - will remain available to book as part of your KS3 visit. We are also developing new resources providing fun approaches to exploring galleries and objects that you may not have used before. These will be available on our website soon.

These, together with our established programme of storytelling sessions, shows, workshops, costumed characters, IMAX films and galleries will still enable you to make a truly inspiring school trip. So contact us on 020 7942 4777 and we’ll be happy to help you plan your visit.
