Science in the U.S.A
New York & Boston were the destinations for 19 Physical Sciences students for an amazing six night stay during the Easter Break.
Inspirational tours of both Columbia and Harvard Universities, an ‘Out of this World’ programme at the New York Science Museum along with a robotics workshop at MIT Boston kept the students enthused, amused and busy, but of course there was plenty of time to be tourists too!
As always, student behaviour was exceptional and all did an amazing job of representing Winstanley College in the USA. Student feedback about the trip was fantastic – a once in a life time experience.
