We offer an exciting range of curriculum-linked workshops for schools, home schoolers and youth groups. Whether you’re exploring STEM, World War Two or creative writing, a trip to the REME Museum is an excellent choice.

Our workshops are tailored for Key Stages 1-3 and can be adapted for additional needs. All sessions are delivered from our spacious education suite by an experienced former teacher.

Included with booking is a self-led visit to our modern, interactive Museum, full of tanks, uniforms and stories. You can also make use of our extensive grounds and challenging assault course when its sunny outside.

Get to grips with STEM skills, using our LEGO® construction equipment.

Our workshops

STEM: REME soldiers rely on STEM skills to keep the British Army’s equipment in fighting shape. With practical, hands-on activities and challenges, our STEM workshops are designed to get pupils working as a team to solve problems. Click here for more information on STEM Workshops.

World War Two: REME was formed to help win the Second World War. Our history workshops explore the lives of REME soldiers and life on the home front using real historical artefacts for an immersive experience. For details of our Wartime Workshops click the link.

Creative Writing: If you’re looking for a new approach to writing about the past we can help. Our Education Officer helped develop the innovative Talk for Writing programme and is ready to inspire your students through object handling, group discussions and practical exercises. Each workshop is unique to your pupils' writing focus and needs. Contact us to craft a workshop.

Our LEGO® STEM workshops are inspired by the huge military vehicles in our Museum.

Don't just take our word for it, hear it from them

Some school pupils who visited wrote us letters to let us know how they found their experience at the Museum:

“I found all of the museum very interesting especially the lego challenge! My favourite room was the around the world room because the vehicles were all very different but very cool. The Armoury Room was also interesting because there were loads of guns and the challenge to find the gun that was being made on the screen was challenging but fun. I had a great time and it was worth the journey.”

“I am writing this letter to say a big thank you! We all really enjoyed being there, it was fabulous. My favourite part was building with the lego. I really liked it because we worked as a team! I also really liked going inside the wooden tank because it had lots of buttons and levers I think everyone really LOVED IT!”
