Let your students experience science outside the classroom with a science school trip to the Netherlands!

Located in Noordwijk on the Dutch coast is Space Expo, the visitor centre of the European Space Agency, where your students can experience the magic of space exploration from the comfort of the Earth.

Just 45 minutes away in Amsterdam is NEMO, the biggest science centre in the Netherlands. Here, your students can discover the wonderful world of science and technology in a fun and educational way. For the more adventurous, why not see physics in action with a day out at the nearby Walibi World or De Efteling Theme Parks? And you could also choose to make your trip cross-curricular by joining forces with your school's history, art or religious studies departments.
