What an amazing day Y4 had at the Discovery Museum in Newcastle.
When we arrived, we had an extra special treat – a ride on the Red Arrows Flight Simulator. It was definitely one of the highlights of the day! We got to experience what it would be like to sit in the cockpit of the Red Arrow jet and saw just how close the planes get to one another. There were lots of screams of enjoyment!
Once everyone had landed back on the ground, we explored the different floors of the museum. There is so much to see but we really enjoyed the interactive science maze where we were able to explore gravity and forces, electricity, sound and optics through lots of experiments and games.
After lunch, our workshop leader took us to the educational room where we worked in teams to create different circuits. Our teachers were very impressed with our knowledge, especially as the challenges became harder and harder. Finally, we all got to make our very own torch to take home using the circuit we had created. The photos show just how much fun we had!
