Find something that you think is strong; find something made from plastic…


This activity helps students explore the galleries and work together to choose an object for each challenge. It is designed to encourage discussion about how science and technology have shaped our lives.

Recommended Galleries

We think the best place to find the most interesting answers are in our Making the Modern World and Secret Life of the Home galleries, both of which are at the Science Museum, London.
