Bell Pettigrew Programming Online
“Fun!” “Cool!” “Educational!” “Brilliant!”
“Interesting!” say students who piloted the educational programming recently
launched by the Bell Pettigrew Museum.
Taking a museum safari, designing a new
exhibition, and learning about animals and their environment by looking,
drawing, acting, and responding are all part of this new programming in science
and art for primary and secondary schools designed to correspond with the
Curriculum for Excellence.
Teachers are invited to download pre-visit preparation information and select
from a variety of activities now available on the Bell Pettigrew Museum and
University of St Andrews: Museum and Collections websites.
Developed by University of St. Andrews
Museum and Gallery Studies Postgraduates, Peggy Larcom and Craig Stables, in
collaboration with Curator Dr. Martin Milner and Assistant Curator Dr. Iain
Matthews, the educational activities aim to enable teachers to more easily use
the museum as a learning resource for students.
In order for visitors of all ages to
actively engage with the museum and its collections, a selection of these
activities will also be available for visitors during the summer months.
