Led by expert staff, our workshops for KS2 allow your class to experience the beautiful Botanic Garden and ignite their interest in plants and science. All workshops are hands-on and involve exploring the Garden and getting up close with some of our 8000 species of plants. We can support your science curriculum learning in Plants, Living Things and Their Habitat, Evolution and Inheritance and Working Scientifically.
Via gallery investigation, source analysis and discussion, students will think about the links between instruments in our collection, scientific racism and the exploitation of resources and people through colonialism and Empire. After being led around our collections by a museum teacher, students will discuss sources and objects in order to find out more about how colonialism and Empire affected science and vice versa.
