Our workshop includes a series of activities which are suitable to deliver offline. Contact our Education Manager for more details.
The workshops involve a live online session with a member of the Museum team. Students will explore themes around the decimalisation publicity campaign. They will discover the work of the Decimal Currency Board and look at the way that information about the changeover was presented to different audiences. Informed by what they have learned, students will then be asked to create a plan for their own modern campaign taking into account new technological and social developments.
There are no formal follow-up sessions available. Schools are invited to share their work on our social media channels using #Decimal50Schools. Students work can also be sent to us for inclusion in an online gallery celebrating our decimalisation project.
