As part of our topic this half-term, 'Is Manchester the best city in the world?', we took a trip to The Museum of Science and Industry.
We left school and ventured through Hulme Park. En route we took in the various sights including the Hulme timeline, the Rolls Royce centenary memorial and Mancunian Way Footbridge. A resounding gasp was audible as the Beetham Tower came into view, with a number of students walking with craned necks for a period.
At the museum, we explored the Air and Space Hall and the Power Hall before lunch. The large aircraft and powerful trains gained the most attention although there was interest in the lighter aircraft. After lunch, we tried to beat robots at dancing, finding watches and building towers. (The humans won) Before returning back to school we stimulated our senses at the 'Experiment' exhibition.
An enjoyable time was had by all, even if there were a few sore legs. Hopefully, this trip has helped give us lots of information and experience of Manchester to help us answer our Big Question. What do you think?
