Fantastic trip. Students thoroughly enjoyed the interactive exhibits. They loved the planetarium show which you must book prior to your visit. Staff at the venue were so helpful and answered any questions. Safe environment for children to explore. (February 2020 - Secondary - Post No: 19483 )

Excellent interactive workshops for Year 3 children on Rocks and another on Forces. (December 2019 - Primary - Post No: 18400 )




A great day out for the students. They got a lot out of it but could have done with having out itinerary adjusted according to the weather as it rained during the visit to the science garden and the museum was not busy. (December 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 18353 )




The bit we saw were amazing, but the students were mostly in a conference room. (December 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 18330 )

The new 'Mini Brum' area is great for children to explore and be imaginative. (November 2019 - Primary - Post No: 17911 )




Our trip to Think Tank was a very positive experience. The children accessed a range of activities that supported a number of units of work and subjects that they children have been learning. The freedom to explore these activities at our own pace allowed us to interact with the children and ask questions relevant to their learning. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful and supported the children's learning in an appropriate manner. (November 2019 - Primary - Post No: 17703 )

Good range of activities to develop pupils scientific knowledge. Allows pupils to have an appreciation of the development of science and the importance of STEM based learning. The Energy Show was particularly engaging and perfectly linked to school based learning. (June 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 13846 )
