We have lots of exciting resources for your classroom. Whether it’s for your budding engineers and artists, or the ones with clever fingers, there are plenty of things to try.
We invited primary students to see the astronomical volvelle in our exhibition, Liked and Shared as part of Science Week. The children then made a replica using the same method of construction with thread and glue. Using more modern materials, they then created their own volvelle based on art, mathematics or phonics.
