Teacher Zone at Lates



Join us in the Teacher Zone at Science Museum Lates.

"Can not compare with anything - excellent!"

"Fabulous fun, please do more of them!"

What is Teacher Zone?
Teacher Zone is a VIP reception area where teachers coming to Science Museum Lates on particular dates (see below) can enjoy drinks and nibbles, alongside exclusive workshops and a chance to find out how the Museum can support your teaching.

We hope you'll then sample the other lively events and entertainment taking place across the Museum as part of the Lates programme, with the option of returning to Teacher Zone at the end of the evening for more activities just for teachers.

Teacher Zone happens once per term and it's intended as a nice treat with some learning activities on the side. There's something new every time you come to Teacher Zone and the Science Museum Lates programme has a different theme each month, so you're welcome to come along again and again!

(Please be aware that Science Museum Lates and the Teacher Zone is an adult event for 18s and over. ID may be required.)

When is Teacher Zone?
The next Teacher Zone will be at Lates on Wednesday 26 November 2014.
