STEAMwork climate action challenges

As part of National Children's Museum's daily STEAMwork video series, each Monday we focus on our climate action superheroes. To kick off the series, we created five challenges to spotlight and help out each of our superheroes.


If you choose to take on all five of the challenges in the videos below, you'll win a small prize and be entered to win a Museum membership. Just don't forget to take a photo or record a video to show us when the Museum reopens. Tag us and use the #STEAMwork on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to show us how you are using your superpowers for the planet. 

And don't forget - no matter what your inner superpower is, we can all work together to make an even bigger difference for the planet.
