A group of our students have visited Paris to enhance their knowledge of maths and science.
During their time in the French capital the Maths and Science A Level students went to the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie, the biggest science museum in Europe. The museum has a planetarium, the Argonaute submarine, an IMAX theatre and special areas for teenagers and children.
The group also visited the Eiffel Tower where they had a behind the scenes tour, enjoyed a trip on the river Seine and went to Disneyland.
Student Mollie Firth, 17, of Ruston Drive, Royston, said: “The science museum was really good. I liked all the different sections, and all the different little activities that they had around.”
Rebecca Downend, 16, of St Annes Drive, Barnsley, added: “I found the Eiffel Tower tour very interesting and really enjoyed the tour guides who helped us and went through the uses of the tower.”
