Summer Holiday – free events and resources
A new trail map around M Shed is now available from the front desk for schools and families visiting the museum. The trail looks at Bristol in the last 650 years through objects on display in the M Shed. Bristol 650 marks 650 years since King Edward III granted important rights and privileges to Bristol by royal charter in 1373.
Create to Celebrate
It’s Bristol Museum’s 200th birthday and it wants to celebrate its brilliant collections with your help. First under the spotlight is the Fine Art collection. There are seven galleries full of paintings, sculpture, glass and ceramics at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery, and you can also find all of the paintings on Art UK. Bristol Museums invite schools to explore the collection, choose a favourite painting and create a piece of artwork in whatever medium, that is inspired by it. Share photos of your creations on social media or email [email protected]
Quantum in the Summer – Summer School at the University of Bristol
Quantum Engineering Technology Labs is running a free quantum summer school for A-Level students to learn more about physics and engineering with the hope that it will inspire a future generation of students to pursue a career in science. In 2023 they will host their ninth annual summer school for students aged 16 and over. The intensive week-long summer school will run in early August 2023 and aims to teach students about quantum mechanics and light. The taught and practical components of the course will take place on the University of Bristol campus. The course is open to students from anywhere in the UK and international students are welcome to apply.
The summer school is a free event but students are expected to cover their own accommodation, travel expenses and dinner. Lunches will be provided throughout the week. More details are available here: Quantum in the Summer | Quantum Engineering Technology Labs | University of Bristol
