Year 8 trip to Thinktank

On Wednesday 8th March 2023, 30 Year 8 students headed to Thinktank.

Thinktank is an education museum dedicated to science and learning. It has different categories of science to explore over its three floors. The staff are friendly and encourage feedback and questions to challenge the mind. These staff presented their information in exciting ways such as in the planetarium which is a dome shaped 4K theatre where we explored how cells worked. We were also given two workshops about the exploration of the universe using electromagnetic waves, and types of energy present within.

The experience was fun, light-hearted and relaxed.


The Museum on the first floor offers a history on mechanics and the industrial revolution.  On the second floor there are exhibits about the environment and the body and, on the third floor, the focus is on physics, space and robotics.

To conclude, Thinktank is highly educational, and educates in a fun, relaxed manner that can really help you, whether adult, pupil or child to better understand our world of science.

Thank you to Mr Hussain and Mr Jones for providing us with the opportunity.
