The Learning Collective

tlc logo 2

We have set up a new membership/mailing list service for our friends and supporters to help sustain and develop what we do through our charity, Science Alive.

If you would like to join, phone our office or click here and email us at

We’d like to invite you to join the learning collective – a group of individuals, education providers and organisations who all value learning in the community. Our main delivery vehicle is the education charity Science Alive, which manages two amazing venues – the Time Machine hands on gallery and Harlow Museum. There are many other projects which use our venues or are simply good friends, which we also want to support.

The idea behind the learning collective is simple. We want to say “Thank you” to everyone who has been part of our story since the Science Alive project was set up in 2004.

We also want to build a strong learning collective of new friends and partners that we can call on for ideas and help from time to time, so that we can keep doing what we love – you might say putting the TLC into the learning collective!

Membership is free – all you need to do is email us at and we’ll add you to our list! Using monthly e-bulletins, we’ll keep you posted on what Science Alive and our partner learning projects are currently doing.

What’s the catch?

From time to time, we may ask TLC members to spread the word if we are looking for volunteers or project funding or if we are putting on special events. We don’t expect you to do anything yourself (unless you really want to!)

That’s it: and you can ask to be removed from our listings at any time.

 What’s in it for you?

  • A say in shaping the future of Science Alive, including plans we have to use TLC as a means of nominating additional Trustees to Science Alive
  • £1 Discount on each admission to Harlow Museum or the Time Machine
  • Member only invites to Exhibition previews & Celebration events
