β€œThe ways we learned about the world when we were babies was through seeing and touching. Perhaps this is why physical models are so good at helping us understand as adults.” - Henry Rae, Senior Teaching Technician, School of Medicine"

Model makers are both artist and scientist. Educational models have a long history in University teaching and Senior Teaching Technician Henry Rae is an experienced and creative practitioner.

In his workshop at the School of Medicine, he trials new materials, tools and techniques to make educational models for schools across the University.

Spooky, scary skeletons send shivers down your spine. Luckily for us at the Bell Pettigrew Museum, some of our skeletons have been fossilised which means we can still display this little guy hundreds of millions of years later! To start off this spooky Halloween season, our #objectoftheweek is one of our trilobites, a neolenus who lived during the Middle Cambrian, roughly 500 million years ago, in what is now the Rocky Mountains. Thanks to their easily fossilised exoskeleton, we have many examples of this arthropod in the fossil record. How many can you see in the Bell Pettigrew Museum?
