Happy New Year!

04 January 2017

2017 is well and truly underway now. We all arrived back in the office yesterday and after a few rounds of coffee and catching up with each other, we were back to our desks ready to go!

We did a slight teaser on our Facebook page over the holidays, showcasing a behind the scenes video on our first family activity of the year – Doc Yard’s Secret Lab.  Following on from the success of Doc Yard’s Science Shows last year, ‘Secret Lab’ is our spin off activity starting in February 2017 and running until 1st May 2017.

Secret Lab will see Doc.Yard’s assistant – Bunsen, experiment and research new findings whilst the Doc is busy travelling. This year Bunsen is concentrating on electricity – this will mean that all the activities for children will have an electricity element to them, showcasing and allowing the children to learn this side of science.  All activities will take place in No.1 Smithery’s Temporary Exhibition gallery (Doc’s Secret Lab!!!)

Below is a video that gives an insight on how the team are getting on building the Secret lab programme. Helen, our Exhibitions and Collections officer talks us through the different areas of the programme on what to expect and with visual insights!

Follow us on our Facebook page and look out for more behind the scenes videos,  on what’s going on here at The Dockyard whilst we are closed for visitors.

Don’t forget we re-open on the 11th February, where Secret Lab will be open along with all of our galleries, warships, adventure play, tours and more! We look forward to seeing you all soon.
