Primary schoolchildren can join the pirate ship Dark Light for an hour- long, swash-buckling adventure throughout the summer term at Eureka!, the Halifax science museum for children.
In a theatre workshop, children will be encouraged to extend and develop their mapping skills and problem-solving techniques as they help the resident pirate to locate hidden treasure.
Video projection, ultra-violet lighting and special sound effects enable the children to explore the world of piracy via rough seas and dangerous terrain.
For information ring Eureka! on 01422 330012.
