Sums of Water Family Workshop

Museum of Scottish Fire Heritage 6th Jul 10.00am-3.00pm Free

Sound the alarms and gear up! Join us for a family workshop at the museum, where you’ll step into the boots of firefighters heading to a rescue mission!

In this escape-room style workshop, you’ll need to work together to solve puzzles, make decisions and safely prepare your crew to tackle the operation, using your mathematical knowledge, just like real life firefighters.

This workshop is intended for the entire family and you will all need to work together to be successful.

There are 3 sessions to choose from, each lasting around 1 hr:

  • 10:30am
  • 12:30pm
  • 2pm

Appropriate for ages 9+

This workshop is free, but ticketed. Book your spot via the link below.
