About:

Bring a touch of Ancient Egypt into your school with our NEW Egyptian Build-A-Pyramid workshop.

Comprising of a complete model of the King’s Pyramid at Giza measuring over 4 foot square, pupils will help our Egyptian Explorer assemble the model to discover how pyramids were built.  By examining the model in profile pupils can see where the passages lead, learn how weight was dispersed by using different stone and see the different chambers and escape tunnels.  We also conduct an experiment to understand how the ancient Egyptians moved the huge stone blocks.

Once the Pyramid is complete we turn to the mummification process and using replica canopic jars we explore the Egyptian people's beliefs and religion.  

If time permits, with a specially designed mannequin, we prepare the body for mummification removing organs and placing them in replica canopic jars, the children can then take it in turns to wrap the mummy.

A complete workshop can last half a day but sessions can be shortened.  If required we can deliver multiple sessions and tailor the workshop to suit the school’s individual needs by reducing or omitting elements.
