Earlier this month, Year 7 girls ventured to London to visit the Science Museum. To begin with, the girls spent time in the interactive ‘Who am I?’ gallery and experienced live demonstrations.

The ‘Who am I?’ gallery explores the self and what makes you unique. The girls were able to get an insight into genetics and brain science; they found out about their brains, their genes and their bodies.

Spending time in the Space and The Modern World galleries opened their eyes to what is out there and how the world has changed.

The girls saw a full-sized replica of ‘Eagle’. This was the lander that took Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to the moon in 1969!  They discovered how we are able to eat, drink and breathe in space.

They were also able to see how the space era began in 1957 with the launch of Sputnik. The girls saw a replica of the Huygens module that landed on Saturn’s largest moon, Titan in 2005.


In the afternoon, the girls were lucky enough to have a personal performance of the rocket show. Here they explored Newton’s three laws with explosions galore!
