The biggest party ever from Bedford Prep School; some 62
boys, six parents and four members of staff attended the Science Night held at
the Science Museum in London from Saturday 4 to Sunday 5 February.
The boys took part in a number of maths-based activities in
the evening and then slept in the ‘Who am I’ gallery, near to the capsule that
transported Tim Peake to and from the International Space Station.
In the morning the boys watched an wonderful 3-D film (A
Beautiful Planet) featuring the International Space Station in the IMAX Theatre
before trying a number of hands-on experiments in the new Wonderlab interactive
A tired but inspired group returned to school on Sunday
lunchtime. Thank you too to all the staff and parents who gave up most of
their weekend to enable the boys to attend this once-in-a-lifetime trip.
