The Education Team

The Education Team at the Sedgwick Museum are available to help you plan your visit and talk you through classroom work on your topic. From dinosaurs, to the rock cycle or volcanoes, we have tips and resources that you might find helpful. You can send us an email or book a planning session with our Education team. 

Planning Sessions
We recommend booking a pre-visit meeting with our Education Co-ordinator to make the most of your group visit to the museum. In this session, you will get a short tour of the museum, highlighting objects appropriate to your area of interest, and a chance to plan your visit and work to support it in the classroom.

Teacher Training
The University of Cambridge Museums (UCM) are working together to provide new training opportunities for teachers to learn more about getting the most out of museum visits - look out for INSET sessions which will be advertised on the UCM website.

Sedgwick Museum Conservator, Sarah Wallace-Johnson, writes about working from home and using the opportunity to find fascinating things in nature in our own gardens.



Women’s contribution to geological science can be ‘seen and heard’ in the Collections at the Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences, and especially in the Archives.

On Sunday 8th March 2020 it’s International Women’s Day, an opportunity to celebrate women's achievement as well as raising awareness and taking action for equality. The Sedgwick Museum is using this important date in the calendar to talk about its collections from a different narrative, one that is equally valid but not previously visible.
