The Learning Team at the REME Museum know how difficult it is at the moment looking after family at home and coping with the Covid-19 emergency. To help you keep small people busy we are creating downloadable worksheets, activities and videos covering REME history, World War Two and STEM topics.

We will post new resources here, on our Facebook page and on our new Youtube channel every Friday. If you take part take a quick photo and share it with us on social media with the tag #rememuseumchallenge.

Stay tuned and stay safe!
