After School Club

Next event: Tuesday 21 November
16.00–17.30

Are you visiting the museum soon with your class? Do you want to see a preview of our learning space? Are there any burning questions you have for our learning team?  At the After School Club, you can meet our Explainers, watch a preview of our shows and see our learning spaces exclusively before you visit. It's also a great opportunity if you need any help planning your school trip, even before you decide to book. We welcome all teachers, including trainee teachers, teaching assistants and tutors.

This event is free to drop in on, but we would like to know who's attending in advance in order to have sufficient refreshments. Tickets will be available soon, but if you would like further information in the meantime please email learning@msimanchester.org.uk.

STEM Networking Live

This tried and tested networking format will bring together teachers and STEM Ambassadors from across Greater Manchester, to discuss how students can be supported through the new science GCSE, paying particular attention to AO2 (application of knowledge).

The evening will include a rapid-fire speed meeting of Ambassadors and teachers, the opportunity to request a STEM Ambassador, and a chance to meet the STEM Ambassador Hub team. 

Refreshments will be provided to help keep you networking!

Free tickets can be booked online at Eventbrite

Would you like to become a learning advisor?

What makes a great learning experience? We’re looking for teachers to help us test new ideas and activities and advise us how to improve them.  

This might include piloting new activities and resources, providing feedback that might help to shape our activities, exhibitions and events, network with experienced museum educators and teachers to share best practice, as well as being the first to be able to bag tickets to our various teacher events! 

To join our Learning Advisors, please download this form and send to Laura Alty, Learning and Public Programmes Coordinator, at laura.alty@msimanchester.org.uk 

If you prefer the form as a Word document, please click here.

We’ll contact you when new opportunities arise and you can decide whether you’d like to be involved. We may ask for feedback by phone or email, so if you’re not able to visit us, you can still be involved.
