Walks for schools through culture, history and belief in Cambridge
There are 5 stopping places on the full walk. Each stop is designed to look at the contribution made by an individual to a particular scientific discovery or scientific field. The children will see something related to the individual, hear their story, and take part in an activity designed to deepen their understanding of the contribution to science, with an emphasis on the importance of personal faith as an inspiration for the desire to unlock the secrets of creation. Teachers can download a pdf of the KS1 Science walk, or click on the links below.
