Young Volunteer Taster Session

1st October

Want to be involved in the creation of a brand new exhibition at the National Coal Mining Museum? Interested in making your CV stand out from the crowd?

We are looking for a team of young volunteers to come and join the Illumination Gallery team here at the Museum, helping to create games, activities and interactives that will help spark our visitors interest in the scientists and engineers who improved the lives of people who worked underground.

As part of the project, you will:

  • Explore the Museum's interactives
  • Trial different games and activities
  • Get hands-on experience underground
  • Find out about mining first hand from our miner guides
  • Experience live science experiments
  • Handle original artefacts
  • Design and create a finished product
  • Showcase your finished product at the Museum's family game event

If this sounds like the project for you, then come along to our Taster Day on Tuesday 1st October from 4-5:30pm where you can meet our current young volunteers and enjoy games, challenges and even some pizza.

Email or call 01924 848806 to book your place or if you have any questions, and make sure you check out our volunteer page to see some of the previous work of our young volunteers.
