Science Museum

Teacher Zone at Lates

Join us in the Teacher Zone, a VIP reception area where teachers coming to Science Museum Lates can enjoy drinks and nibbles, alongside exclusive workshops and a chance to find out how the Museum can support your teaching.

Teacher Zone happens at Lates once per term (see the dates below) and it's intended as a nice treat with some useful teaching and learning activities on the side. 

There's something new every time and the Lates programme has a different theme on each occasion, so you're welcome to come along again and again!

Scheduled dates
