Scottish Maritime Museum launches 50 free online workshops for primary schools in Renfrewshire


The Scottish Maritime Museum is offering 50 free online workshops for first Renfrewshire primary schools to get in touch.

The exciting new ‘Ship to Shore’ e-learning workshops, which focus on STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) activities linked to the Scottish Maritime Museum’s most popular program of excellence, are suitable for all grades of primary school.

The “Ship to Shore” workshop includes two live links between the Museum’s educational team and the school, as well as a set of digital resources containing additional information, activities and challenges.

Schools can choose from topics and activities as fascinating and engaging as the lives of Puffer Boats, buoyancy and the “Eureka” moment of Archimedes, the design of the Titanic and sending Morse code messages “from social distancing. “To classmates!

During the second live link, activities also include an “unboxing” of artifacts from the Museum’s National Maritime Heritage collection.

Sarah Takhar, Head of Learning and Access at the Scottish Maritime Museum, explains:
“We are delighted to offer 50 free ‘Ship to Shore’ e-learning workshops to primary schools in Renfrewshire.

“We have a well-established educational program at the Museum and the online workshops provide a great opportunity for schools to enjoy and learn from some of our most popular workshops.

“Students of all ages can become curious, creative and inspired by our nationally recognized collection of maritime heritage and engineering, which is so well suited for STEM learning.”

The Scottish Maritime Museum is now accepting reservations on its website: www.scottishmaritimemuseum.org.

As funding for free places is a fixed amount and therefore offered on a ‘first come, first served’ basis, schools are encouraged to contact us as soon as possible.
