A relaxed session for families with members on the autism spectrum to take part in fun activities in a quiet environment. Learn about some of the ideas, concepts, and processes that scientists use when studying natural history and get the chance to handle real specimens.
Four different activities will focus on entomology, geology, zoology, and rocks/minerals. You will be able to carefully examine specimens using special equipment and encouraged to think like a scientist about the samples you are looking at. Each activity should take 10-15 minutes to complete, with one group/family completing an activity at a time.
Suitable for families with children aged 8+ and would typically appeal to children up to age 13.
The session will take place in the Annexe, a quieter part of the Museum with a separate entrance.
