Year 7 - Sleepover at the Science Museum
On Friday 16th Sept the Science Department organised a Science Night at the Science Museum in South Kensington. Science Night is a special overnight event for 7-11 year olds featuring exciting hands-on workshops, science shows and a sleepover at the Science Museum among the amazing exhibits.
Ten Year 7 boys accompanied by Mrs Barry and Mrs Brierley travelled up on Friday afternoon. Doors opened at 18:45pm and it was a full schedule of events until bedtime at 23:30pm! Our group was called ‘The Purple Detectives’ and we set up camp in the ‘Who am I?’ Gallery!
On Saturday morning we had a 6:45am wake up and after breakfast we attended a wonderful lecture followed by a film in the IMAX Theatre. We departed at 10am thoroughly exhausted (the museum floor is very hard!) but still buzzing from a night full of wonderful experiences.
