Whimsey's Adventure Backpacks

Available all year round

Follow the story of Whimsey, a mystery object who doesn’t know what material he is made from, only that he was made a long time ago in a factory in Sunderland. Can pupils discover what material Whimsey is made from and what his special properties are? Where do they think Whimsey came from? Pupils use the materials and activity ideas in the backpacks in small groups to carry out investigations and tests. This session has been designed as a half facilitated visit, half self-led visit, allowing some flexibility in timing and content to fit your needs.
