Design & Technology school trips

Innovative problem solving

The UK has a proud tradition of design and technology, in the air, on land and at sea. Whatever your curriculum project, you are likely to find a school visit below that will complement your class activities and inspire your pupils' creativity and understanding. We have visits that focus on pre-historic technology, on the advancement of science through the Age of Enlightenment, on how mining methods have changed through the years, and about how cutting edge design is helping solve the energy problem.

Short on time? We can help!

Let us find the perfect Design & Technology experience for your school trip.
