At this Big Science Project families will discover the fascinating science behind using wool for footpaths in this engaging activity for families during the summer school holidays at the National Wool Museum

This Free Big Science Project event will give kids a real Hands-On Science experience. They can dive into the world of wool as they create their own ‘path’ and witness the science behind its use in footpaths.

It will give them a fab chance to really explore wool’s structure, as they get up close and personal with wool as they examine its physical structure and learn about its unique properties.

Kids can enhance their understanding by visualizing the layers and labelling their own strand diagram during the activity.

This event is suitable for both primary and secondary school-aged children, making it an educational and enjoyable outing for the whole family.

We think it’s a fab chance for your little ones to unleash their creativity. Engaging their creative side while discovering the remarkable science behind using wool in footpaths.

Then after the project, your family can take the opportunity to explore the National Wool Museum, where you’ll find more wool-related exhibits and insights into Wales’s wool industry.

Take your family to the National Wool Museum for a cost-free, educational, and fun-filled experience this summer!
