Learning at Woolsthorpe Manor

Hand holding an apple and feather to test Newton's First Law of Motion

We are an ideal location for a science-based school or college visit. With our team of enthusiastic and knowledgeable science communicators, we offer an exciting and inspiring experience to engage curious young minds. We bring Newton's science and story to life in our rural, historic setting.

The world changed here in this quiet Lincolnshire village. Woolsthorpe Manor is where Isaac Newton saw an apple fall, split light into rainbow colours and tried to solve the system of the universe - all before he was 24 years old.

Students will get to experience engaging hands-on science activities at a site of worldwide scientific significance. We encourage our young visitors to be curious.  Inspired by the natural environment and the world around him,  Newton started to question, explore and experiment in a way that would shape modern scientific thinking.

Educational visits can include:

* Practical science workshops relating to forces, light, space and sound.
* Guided tours of Isaac Newton’s home (including the famous apple tree).
* Guided sessions in the interactive Science Centre.

If you would like to find out more, please get in touch with our Learning Officer at esther.cropper@nationaltrust.org.uk 

We are in the process of revising our education programme and we will have more information and resources available soon.
