Syd recently took his scientists to the Royal Institute, as part of the Skilled For Life unit, where they have been studying theory and practice of Science in everyday life. There have been working laboratories at the Royal Institution for over 200 years, where some world changing discoveries have been made. The most important of these for our scientists was the creation of the electric dynamo by Michael Faraday in 1821. Our Green Room pupils stood in the very room where Faraday did this and changed our world forever.
During the trip we were all given PDA’s and headsets which guided us round the displays and helped us to complete worksheets that can be used as evidence on the Science in the World course.
After the institution we walked through Saville Row, New Bond Street and Carnaby street before having a hot chocolate in an award winning cafe off Regent Street.
