Thanks to mum of three Helen for sending this one in… The Invisible Museum is a series of videos on YouTube aimed at 7 – 11 year olds, and containing a range of science, technology, engineering, arts and maths themed activities. The difference here is that the programmes are hosted by a real life time traveller and the subjects are people from history that you might not have heard about before

The curator has also created an activity pack to go with her videos. Each activity sheet contains her notes, photographs and a S.T.E.A.M. activity for you to carry out.
