The Education Team

The Education Team at the Sedgwick Museum are available to help you plan your visit and talk you through classroom work on your topic. From dinosaurs, to the rock cycle or volcanoes, we have tips and resources that you might find helpful. You can send us an email or book a planning session with our Education team. 

Planning Sessions
We recommend booking a pre-visit meeting with our Education Co-ordinator to make the most of your group visit to the museum. In this session, you will get a short tour of the museum, highlighting objects appropriate to your area of interest, and a chance to plan your visit and work to support it in the classroom.

Teacher Training
The University of Cambridge Museums (UCM) are working together to provide new training opportunities for teachers to learn more about getting the most out of museum visits - look out for INSET sessions which will be advertised on the UCM website.

W.B.R. King was awarded the Military Cross for bravery with the British Expeditionary Force before being evacuated from Dunkirk in 1940. He was a Cambridge graduate and World War I veteran who pioneered the use of geological expertise in the theatre of war. King went on to become the 11th Woodwardian professor of geology in 1944.




The recent discovery of Ice Age mammoth and rhino remains near Cambridge became national news. By coincidence, the Sedgwick Museum at the University of Cambridge has a new exhibit which tells the story of late Ice Age times and how the life and environments of Cambridgeshire were dramatically altered by climate change.
