The Engine House project is based at Sandford Mill, Chelmsford's old waterworks, where the Museum's industrial collections are stored. In our science sessions we use the museum collections and our own purpose built interactive exhibits to give children exciting hands-on experiences. Our sessions are linked to the National Curriculum. We use large hands-on exhibits to help children find out how things work. We use museum collections to link science to everyday situations.
