Assemblies

Our pre-recorded assemblies are aimed at primary age pupils. In them you can find out all about careers that use science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) to help us to find out about our past.

As well as finding out about some exciting careers, in each assembly we will also be meeting a special guest who will be answering questions sent in by local schools.

Each assembly can be watched all at once or broken up and watched over a few days. We have added timestamps to our assemblies so you can easily find each question or section in our videos. Just start the video and hover over the time bar to find the section you are looking for.

If you use our assemblies we’d love to know what you think. You can send us your feedback through our online form here: https://forms.gle/NEMFfSX8UiFi4qpT6
