Our exciting new workshop Purge the Plague is now available for your KS2 and KS3 classes. Students will take on the role of an 18th century apothecary and use mathematics, creative and logic skills to create remedies for their patients. Using resources including a fantastic range of ingredients and their properties, local* maps and information about diseases, they will develop remedies for three different patients suffering from a range of 18th century conditions, and then pitch their potion to a panel of their peers.
