Science and Industry Museum blog

We weren’t the only ones cooped up during lockdown. In this blog, Rachel Rimmer, our Conservation and Collections Care Manager, looks at how her team prepared for leaving the collections and objects on their own and how having no visitors brought some unexpected advantages.

As the world finds itself in lockdown, our aim for Earth Day 2020 was to take the opportunity for our STEM Ambassadors to reflect on travel and the places that their STEM career or education has taken them.

In this post, local student Samina Kabki tells us about her experience of volunteering at the museum, and how it helped with her studies and subsequent university application.

Did you know that we have one of the original eggs from the first Alien movie in our collection? It’s definitely one of the most unusual objects in our collections (which at several million objects is saying something!)

With the themes of National Careers Week (2–7 March 2020) and British Science Week (6–15 March 2020) looking to the future of the planet and the future of work, STEM Ambassador Support Coordinator, Cassie-Jo Gormley, spoke with some of the STEM Ambassadors about what the future holds for their jobs.
