Learner Levels

Eureka! Education visits are designed for children in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), and Key Stages 1 and 2.

Our Play & Learning Team are experts at researching and developing new content for our galleries and programmes, and hunting out world-class specialists to work with on our projects. We ensure that our galleries and programmes are curriculum-linked and that all learning is up-to-date, relevant and reliable.

All this and more means that you can be confident that a class visit to Eureka! is a day well spent.

Curriculum-linked programmes

Our schools’ Programmes are delivered by trained Enablers and linked to clear learning outcomes. Choose from:

  • Workshops: a guided activity, with all resources provided and expertly run by one of our Enablers.
  • Science Shows: a presentation-style session, including opportunities for you and your pupils to participate.
