Snippets Of Science At The Wedgwood Museum – 1th – 20th March


The team at the Wedgwood Museum will be getting scientific for British Science Week from 11th – 20th March, with a series of mini ‘Science Snippets’ gallery talks throughout the week.

Within the Museum’s collections there are a plethora of science-related objects, including the famous Wedgwood Pyrometer, experiment books and Wedgwood codes and formulae. Each ‘Science Snippet’ will last around 15 minutes and will include an explanation of the object’s function and importance and questions and answers. Visitors will also be able to handle and examine the objects for themselves.

“There are some amazing objects in the Wedgwood Museum collection that really bring science to life, so the team thought it would be a great idea to do some short talks linking to British Science Week,”

said Heather Broadhurst, General Manager at World of Wedgwood.

“They have put together a series of ‘Science Snippets’ that will appeal to all ages and also give people the opportunity to handle the pieces themselves, which is very exciting as it is not something that visitors are generally able to do.”

Science Snippet subjects will vary each day and the talks will take place in the Wedgwood Museum’s main galleries. There is no additional cost above the Wedgwood Museum standard admission prices, which start from £3.75 for children aged 6-16 years.
