National Science and Engineering Week Special Promotion

Monday, 11 March, 2013 (All day) to Friday, 15 March, 2013 (All day)

The Education team at the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens are inviting all primary school classes from reception up to and including year 6 to join us at the gardens for a day in the week of 11th - 15th March 2013. Pupils will be charged at half the normal rate (normal rate is £4.25 per pupil) and any accompanying adults are free. There is also a booking fee of £20 per school. This year’s National theme is “Invention and Discovery" and we have devised an exciting programme of activities for a day visit: • Dramatised Presentation – step back in time for a hands on experience and meet “Mary Anning” - one of the early fossil hunters. • Plant Hunters Trail – find out about some of the adventures that the plant hunters had in bringing back to Great Britain a whole host of new plants in this fun and informative trail. • Vegetable Discovery Game – an interactive game to discover some interesting facts about our everyday vegetables, where they came from and when they were first used in cooking. • Invention Timeline Maze – follow the fun maze and discover the chronological order of important inventions. • Seed Bank Game –Paired blindfolded interactive game involving trust and co-operation whilst collecting seeds for the “National Seed Bank” to help the conservation and biodiversity of plants for the future. Please contact us either by telephone: 01794 369308 or by e-mail:
