Science Camera Action

Project Overview

This project has been created as part of a partnership project between Hull Museums, Harrogate Museums & Arts and Yorkshire Waterways Museum. Each museum worked with a local school and professional film makers to create a series of films. These films are inspired by what the children learnt through participating in science based led sessions at each museum.
