Year 4 pupils from Hillbrook Primary take a trip to Launchpad, the Science Museum's most popular interactive gallery.
Recently relaunched with new exhibits, demonstrations and shows, the gallery targets pupils at KS2 to promote enthusiasm about science and complement learning in the classroom.
To make the most of the trip, teacher Katie Chesworth is keen to relate the visit into her pupils' work on forces and friction. They get the chance to explore relevant exhibits and take in an explosive show on rockets.
There is also a brief introduction to the Science Museum's online interactive game Launchball, designed to bring scientific principles alive in the classroom and to make homework more interesting.
