STEM Club visits the Whipple Museum
Yesterday, sixth form members of STEM club went on a lunchtime outing to the Whipple Museum of the History and Philosophy of Science (the original site of The Perse).
After an informative tour from one of the museum’s curators to whet the students’ scientific appetite, they explored the various artefacts covering all areas of science, helping them to think about applications of the science they learn in the classroom.
At the end of the visit they shared their favourite artefacts, which ranged from glass models of funghi through to an early cyclotron and a model planetarium.
This was a very informative and fascinating visit for all involved.
