The "Mary Rose" was King Henry VIII's favourite battleship, which sank in the Battle of the Solent on 19 July 1545. She was raised in 1982 and brought back to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard where she is now housed in a multiaward-winning museum. The purpose-built Stavros Niarchos Foundation Learning Centre includes a teaching laboratory where primary children can gain a real sense of being a scientist. The learning team delivers a range of hands-on history and STEM workshops directly linked to the story and the conservation of the Mary Rose and her unique collection of Tudor objects. This article features a popular workshop inspired by the cutting-edge conservation scientists at the museum. It begins by introducing the children to a range of STEM-related careers, explicitly highlighting that there are careers available to people who love both history and science. The session is designed to be age appropriate and aligned to the science National Curriculum for England years 1-6 (ages 5-11).
