Learning resources

Make the most out of your visit to PK Porthcurno with our downloadable learning resources that you can use before or after a visit, whether you are visiting as a school group or independently.

Use our resources to familiarise your group with the science and technology of communications and some of the objects they will see when they are here, or use them for activities in the galleries and follow-up work back at school or at home.

During Covid lockdown, use our resources for creating some fun and educational activities at home. Trail
