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!
