The family science sketch

Choose something in the Museum to draw and we can add your drawing to our 'Wall of Fame' which will be published on our social media after half term. If you are stuck for inspiration, why not have a go at one of our challenge cards?

This event is working in partnership with a local adoption group to celebrate families with adopted children.
