Exciting, interesting, enjoyable. These are just some of the words I would use to describe our trip to the science museum. We went around three different rooms at the museum: ‘Who am I?’, ‘The Launch pad’ and ‘Exploring Space’.
‘Who am I? was an interactive room full of games, activities, and quizzes on touch screen computers. It was all about feelings, gender, emotions, likes and dislikes. There were also displays of skeletons and treasured objects. Next, we visited ‘The Launch pad’, which was my favourite exhibit of them all. The whole room consisted of experiments, split into different components. The first thing that caught my attention was a machine that when you pulled a rope, a blast of air would shoot the ball upwards and your job was to try and get the ball out of the net at the top, which I later realised was impossible!
The final and most educational room was ‘Exploring Space’. It was amazing! I especially loved the huge model Apollo rocket in the middle of the room. I found the spacesuits informative and very fascinating. We also had to fill in a ‘space book’profile page, which was fun, but very cheesy.
Overall, the trip to the science museum was a great success and I would definitely go again.
