Science School Trip to Paris

Science School Trip to Paris

This is the third trip that i have booked to Paris but the first time that I have used WST. I have been incredibly impressed with all communication from the start right to the end of the trip. Nothing has been too much trouble and I have felt very important. Kerrie has been especially amazing and has made it seem as though our business is top priority for her.

The King John School

The City of Science and Industry Museum

This museum, unlike any other, invites you to take a different look at scientific and technological developments. It provides the necessary learning tools to better understand the world in constant change around us. Covering an area of 30,000 m2 exhibitions are organised around the major themes of science, technology and industry. They are supported by small-scale models, audio-visuals, demonstrations, interactive options and activity programmes.  A must do visit on a Science trip to Paris.

The Marie Curie Museum

Take a free guided tour of this museum located in the former laboratory of Marie Curie the famous physicist. Trace the various stages of discovery of the Curie family who won five Nobel Prizes between them!  Marie performed her research here from 1914-1934 and in this laboratory her daughter and son-in-law discovered artificial radioactivity.

The museum contains a permanent historical exhibition on radioactivity and its applications, notably in medicine, focusing primarily on the Curies, and displays some of the most important research apparatus used before 1940.

The Museum of Air and Space

Located at Bourget Airport and occupying over 150,000 m2 of land and hangars, this is one of the oldest aviation museums in the world with a wide range of aviation paraphernalia from as far back as the 16th century. Students love the simulators and the planetarium, whilst the ballooning era room is fascinating, as are all the modern air and spacecrafts, including the prototype for the Concorde and a number of Swiss and Russian rockets.

The Natural History Museum

Applying itself to research and the dissemination of knowledge, the Natural History Museum houses several large exhibition halls, the favourites being The Hall of Evolution and the gallery of palaeontology.  Group visits need to be rebooked.

The Palace of Discovery Science Museum

Interactive experiments and verbal presentations address six fundamental domains of science (astronomy, chemistry, physics, life sciences, earth sciences, and mathematics) and develop specific themes in the temporary exhibitions.  The museum presents and demonstrates science as it is lived and experienced, through a collection of interactive experiences and spectacular demonstrations.  It is "science in the making".
