Sustained enrichment programme is a collaborative attempt between the Museum and schools or educational institutions to support students by conducting regular enrichment programmes with them relevant to their curriculum. Through a set of 8 workshops, the Museum facilitates deeper engagement with curriculum in a hands-on manner. These workshops are formalised in consultation with the school teachers and are aimed at children’s cross-curricular development.

How to initiate an SEP

SEPs can be conducted through the course of the year and can be started at any time, although beginning of the year is preferred. Educators can get in touch with the Education team to plan out the programme.

Frequency: Once in a month or two months
