M Shed science discovery day

Saturday, 23 March, 2013 - 11:00 to 15:00

Visit M Shed on the 23rd March for a family friendly day showcasing brilliant inventions and amazing discoveries. Find out about the museum’s science collections and meet the people that work with them. Discover what our own team of archaeologists have dug up, bring in your finds for the Portable Antiquities Scheme to identify and handle some of the earliest objects ever invented. You can even have a go at being an archaeologist with our mini-excavation (book on the day). Find out about wildlife and investigate the life of wasps before joining our natural history curator on a ‘bug search’ to look at the native invertebrates in the local area (weather permitting). Explore the many industrial inventions in M Shed, take look behind-the-scenes or a ride on the dockside cranes then make a model to take home. M Shed’s Science Discovery Day will also include Bristol’s first Mini Maker Faire, where Bristol makers share their latest projects and inventions.
