Medieval Construction Science Show

Learn how Medieval builders used scientific principals to create huge buildings, many of which still stand today!

Investigate the engineering behind Medieval castles in our cross curricular, interactive show for P4-7 pupils.

Your pupils will take part in demonstrations and challenges as they follow the journey of a block of stone from a quarry to the top of an arch, overcoming gravity and other forces along the way!
