We offer an outreach programme to suit all ages ranging from our travelling suitcase full of Benjamin Franklin related objects, to a variety of engaging Science and History classes.
If your school or class is unable to visit the museum, we offer a tailored Outreach Programme as an alternative to the School Visit.
For schools located outside of London or the UK:
All schools that visit the House are given a choice of Science demonstrations to be performed by the Education Manager; each of these can be performed virtually for your class. These demonstrations are;
- The True Nature of Lightning
- Inventing the Armonica
- Investigating Canals
In addition to this, a guided virtual tour will also be available as well as a short introduction to Benjamin Franklin and his time at 36 Craven Street.
Virtual offer timings; (30mins) or (1hr) per session.
For schools located within London Zones 1-4;
If you are unable to visit, but located in London, our Education Manager can also travel to you as part of our Outreach Programme. In-school visits will introduce students to Benjamin Franklin, 36 Craven Street, Georgian England and 18th Century Science.
The second half of the workshop will then explore one of three themed activities;
- Become and Inventor
- Look at Me!
- Franklin’s Fables
Classroom visit timings; (45min) or (1hr) per session.
Up to 30 pupils per session.
