Year 9 Science Museum Trip

November 19th 2021

On 19th November, 30 Year 9 students were taken to the Science Museum to visit The Winton Gallery.

The gallery explores how Mathematics shapes the world and emphasises the importance of it in our everyday life. We explored different and powerful stories about the work of mathematicians in the broadest sense, from salespeople to sailors, aircraft engineers to bankers, and gamblers to garden designers.

Students were fascinated by the designs created by Zaha Hadid Architects, while examining the fundamental role mathematicians, their tools and ideas, have played in building the world we live in.

Pupils found the gallery very thought-provoking and fascinating. They loved seeing the aeroplane in the centre of the gallery, which is just one example of how mathematics plays in important role in our lives.
