A science school trip to Paris will provide your students with plenty of opportunities to see the relevance of science in the ‘real world’!

Paris is home to one of the world’s largest and most exciting science museums – La Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie. There are some fantastic interactive exhibitions here on climate change and fossil fuels, and the planetarium is excellent too.

Make sure you also stop at the Marie Curie Museum, to discover the work of this incredible woman and how her legacy is still keenly felt today in hospitals around the world.

And, because Paris lends itself so well to many different subjects, including French, art, food technology, fashion, history and business studies, it's also the perfect choice for a cross-curricular school trip!

The trip was extremely well organised and the students enjoyed it thoroughly. We plan to return to Vietnam on the year 11 trip next year as it was one of the highlights of the school residentials. The local agency was phenomenal and the tour guides extremely courteous. From the teachers and students at ISM. Thank you for an unforgettable experience. — International School of Moscow, February 2019
