Museum of the History of Science, Technology and Medicine

Education & Engagement

The University of Leeds and the surrounding area has played an exciting role in the development of science, technology and medicine. The Museum aims to share this history with current University students and the public. We run education and engagement programmes throughout the year.


Our education programme includes Undergraduate and Master’s level modules for students at the University of Leeds and workshops for local schools which are suitable for KS2 through to A-Level students. These sessions present students with the opportunity to be creative and use independent thinking, as well as the exciting opportunity to handle objects.

For the public we run campus tours (guided or self-guided), are involved with public lectures, participate in city wide events such as “Light Night” and celebrate key events in the history of science in Leeds such as the centenary of William and Lawrence Bragg’s Nobel Prize for the development of X-ray Crystallography and crystal analysis. In the future we hope to develop adult learning groups through interactive workshops.

Please see the side tabs for more information on any of these events or activities. Alternatively email if you would like the museum’s involvement in an event or education programme.
