Platform for Investigation is part of the Science and Industry Museum’s Contemporary Science programme that will run for nine days during October half term. It is a platform for scientists, researchers and STEM professionals to demonstrate their work and research through high quality and participatory experiences, showcasing the latest developments in STEM.

There are currently three dates in need of activities – 19, 20 and 27 October – and each day has a different topic. More information about this opportunity is below:

Dates: Saturday 19, Sunday 20 and Sunday 27 October
Time: 10.30am-3.30pm
Target audience: family groups with children aged 7-14
Activity number: approx. five hands-on, drop in activities or demonstrations on each date.

More information about what kind of activities are required at each event day is in the attached brief (Platform for Investigation – October half term brief). This may be a great opportunity for colleagues within a Department/School/Research Group or across these units to work together to deliver a variety of great activities on one day.
