The Scottish Maritime Museum has 50 FREE online workshops on offer for the first primary schools across West Dunbartonshire to get in touch.

The exciting new, ‘Ship to Shore’ Online Learning Workshops, which centre on the Scottish Maritime Museum’s most popular Curriculum for Excellence linked STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) activities, suit all primary school years.

The ‘Ship to Shore’ Workshop includes two live links between the Education team at the Museum and school as well as a digital resource pack full of supporting information, activities and challenges.

Schools can choose from topics and activities as fascinating and engaging as the life of Scotland’s lifeline Puffer boats, buoyancy and Archimedes’ ‘Eureka’ moment, the design of the Titanic and sending ‘socially distanced’ Morse Code messages to classmates!
During the second live link, activities also include an ‘unboxing’ of artefacts from the Museum’s national maritime heritage collection.
Sarah Takhar, Learning and Access Officer at the Scottish Maritime Museum, explains: 
“We’re thrilled to offer 50 FREE ‘Ship to Shore’ Online Learning Workshops to primary schools across West Dunbartonshire.
“We have a well-established education programme at the Museum and the online workshops give schools a great opportunity to enjoy and learn from some of our most popular workshops.
“Pupils of all ages can get curious, creative and inspired by our nationally recognised collection of maritime heritage and engineering which is so well suited to STEM learning.”
The Scottish Maritime Museum is accepting bookings now. 
As funding for the free places is for a fixed amount and therefore offered on a ‘first come, first served’ basis, schools are urged to get in touch as soon as they can.

To find out more, contact the Scottish Maritime Museum Learning and Access Team by emailing education@scotmaritime.org.uk or by calling 01294 278283.
